Every year the Centre for International Programs hosts the Study Abroad Fair to showcase the University of Guelph's study abroad programs and the supports available to students. You will also have the chance to hear from students who have been on Guelph's study abroad programs. This year the Study Abroad Fair will be hosted virtually (vSAF)!

Throughout the week there will be multiple sessions throughout the day, covering a vast amount of topics such as financing your study abroad, travelling for the first time, available supports, what other students experienced, information from program, career, and co-op counsellors, general information and much more! Do you have questions regarding study abroad? We also offer general drop-in sessions to answer your questions and help you along this exciting journey!
