Students participating in a University-related travel activity (i.e., course work, internships, exchange programs, field work or research, for credit or not) are required to register their travel (in Canada or outside Canada) on Minerva.
In order to register your travel on Minerva, your international activity will first have to be approved by your academic unit or research supervisor.

If you are participating in an internship abroad (University-related international activity) you are required to participate in a pre-departure orientation session before you leave.
University-wide sessions are hosted every semester by the Office of International Education. These sessions provide information about the travel registry, advice from McGill and Canadian government officials about consular services, regional safety, health, and travel tips, and specific information from regional experts on your host country.
