Arts & Science Undergraduate Students

International experiences provide a rich array of benefits

  • International experiences can have a significant impact on a student’s life and career — often determining or defining their academic focus and future career plans.
  • Many students go on to study in graduate schools around the world, and they need to be prepared to engage in global research conversations in a meaningful way. 
  • Toronto is unique for its multicultural and inclusive society. An international experience can provide an opportunity to participate in academic traditions and locations that may be quite different from this environment.
  • An international experience provides a way of integrating a global perspective into many fields, like sciences, where there may not be an explicit international component or content.
  • Travel is safe and supported. The Faculty of Arts & Science works closely with the University’s Safety Abroad Office to ensure that all Faculty-sponsored international opportunities are safe and support is provided while students are off-campus.
