Study Abroad

The Faculty of Arts maintains bilateral exchange programs with many universities around the world and encourages students to spend a term or two studying abroad, either through an exchange program or independently.

Studying at another university is an opportunity which can enrich your undergraduate education and provide you with a chance for personal growth.  A term or year abroad takes planning and must be approved by the Faculty of Arts.  Be sure to carefully read the information about the various types of studying abroad opportunities: Exchange, Independent Study Away, Quebec University Studies, Online Courses, Explore program, Field Studies and off-Campus courses.

Given the precarious state of affairs in Turkey, and the possibility that the travel advisory issued by Global Affairs will not be lifted before the start of the fall term, McGill is suspending all student activities which were to take place in Turkey in fall 2016. 

Global Affairs Canada is advising against non-essential travel to Turkey.  McGill’s University-related International Travel Guidelines do not permit travel to countries or regions for which Global Affairs Canada has issued a travel advisory.

Since we do not know when activities will be allowed to resume, students who are planning to travel to Turkey in winter 2017 should also make alternate plans at this time.

Note: 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 on Minerva. For more information please read our International Travel Registry information.
