The University of Alberta is a Top 5 Canadian university and one of the Top 100 in the world, home to more than 170 graduate programs, 200 undergraduate programs, and 450 active student groups.
For groups of students wishing to experience what UAlberta and Edmonton has to offer, the Visiting Student and Internship Programs unit offers short-term programs for groups (cohorts) of students from partner institutions.
Cohort programs go beyond the regular degree programs offered at UAlberta and can be custom-designed based on the requirements of the partner institution. Whether interdisciplinary covering a variety of topics, or focusing on one academic discipline, the Visiting Student and Internship Programs team can create a flexible, immersive short-term program that is tailored to your specifications.
