Study away and Exchanges

Studying away from McGill is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity whose benefits can go far beyond academic learning. The opportunity to study at another university can add significant dimensions to your undergraduate education by enabling you to develop broader perspectives on your fields of study, to enhance skills in cross-cultural communication and critical thinking applicable to your everyday life and provide you with a chance for personal growth.

Our Department's student exchange programs are organized by the Faculty of Science, and we invite you to consult their website for more information.  

Additionally, if you are a U1 student interested in such an opportunity, we encourage you speak with the Undergraduate Student Advisor for our Department.  You can send an e-mail to carmen.paezmendoza [at] mcgill.ca for more information.
