Study Abroad

All study abroad activities for Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 are cancelled.

 Winter 2022 exchange applications will be open from July 5 to 26, 2021.


Due to the ongoing barriers to international travel as well as the Canadian government’s current travel and health advisories, indicating that all non-essential travel outside of Canada should be avoided until further notice, McGill has made the difficult decision to cancel all outbound international exchanges and terms away for the Summer 2021 and Fall 2021 terms. Relatedly, international exchanges commencing in the months of June or July will also be cancelled.

Students will not be able to take online courses with the host university they were set to attend.
