Get Global, Experience Exchange

What would it be like to take exciting classes while discovering new landscapes and cultures? Have you ever thought about conducting research in Asia, Oceania or Europe while completing your degree? The Faculty of Applied Science & Engineering is working in co-operation with the Centre for International Experience (CIE) to offer great opportunities to study abroad at top-tier universities. New structured exchange pathways offer students the opportunity to pursue pre-approved courses at a partner institution during certain points in your curriculum. You can complete your requirements as if you were studying here at U of T.

  • the Academic Plan reignites our Faculty’s vision,
  • get funding for your good ideas,
  • become a permanent class leader, and
  • get your final exam questions answered.
