Expand Your Horizons

Graduate with a truly global Engineering degree and broaden your understanding of different cultures, values and lifestyles around the world by studying abroad or participating in a student exchange program. U of T students can select from more than 130 institutions (including KAIST, pictured above) in 40 countries that offer an ever-increasing selection of engineering programs. Applicants for fall and winter and for full-year exchange and study abroad programs are assessed after the deadline for that program. All qualified applicants will be interviewed. Review the International Student Exchange Office's application criteria then contact Rosemary Guido in the Engineering Awards & Admissions Office, GB 153, for Engineering-approved exchanges. Join the Blackboard community "StudyAbroad" to stay up-to-date. February 26 is the deadline for most destinations.
