There are countless reasons why you may choose to study or work abroad during your time at Seneca. In addition to seeing another part of the world and experiencing life in a new culture, the opportunity can provide you with an opportunity to explore academic and work environments outside of Canada. Global opportunities also provide you with marketable skills, such as intercultural learning, adaptability and flexibility, which you can highlight to future employers. You may also learn a new language, expand your network or simply check a travel destination off your bucket list.
The International Mobility Office offers four main types of programs, called global opportunities: Semester Exchange allows you to study abroad for a semester (four to six months) with one of our international partners. You will explore new cultures and new forms of teaching while earning credit towards your Seneca credential. Summer Academic Program allows students to study abroad for two to six weeks during the summer. Students typically take one or two courses that can offset the workload for an upcoming term. These programs have extracurricular activities and experiential learning embedded in the programming to ensure you explore the local culture and context of the host country. Faculty-Led Program Abroad (FLPA) is an opportunity to take Seneca courses overseas. You will join a group of Seneca students and experience the world under the guidance of a Seneca faculty member. International Work Experience: Several programs at Seneca have mandatory or optional work experience components. These may come in the form of field placements, externships, work terms or co-ops. This global opportunity allows you to gain a competitive edge when entering an increasingly globalized work force.

This is to ensure that their program of study and/or study permit will not be impacted by travelling abroad. Immigration specialists can be reached at email@example.com.
