Study Abroad Programs

University of Guelph study abroad programs consist of three types: semesters abroad exchange programs and field schools.

Semesters abroad offer a structured group experience where a Guelph faculty member accompanies students abroad. Students take Guelph courses and pay tuition to the University of Guelph.

Exchange programs offer students an opportunity to take courses at a university abroad for up to a year and get credit toward their degree at Guelph. In return, students from the host university may study at Guelph. Tuition is paid to the student's home university.

Field Schools are short-term courses taught abroad usually in May/June for 4-6 weeks. They combine academics with hands-on experiential learning “in the field,” allowing students to incorporate what they are learning in class with their international location.

Participants in a University of Guelph study abroad program may qualify for a travel scholarship, see Chapter IX--Scholarships and Other Awards for details.
