All students going abroad on an education abroad program must complete a mandatory Pre-Departure Orientation before leaving Canada, available online through eClass and in-person.
The online Pre-Departure Orientation is complimented by a series of workshops facilitated by the Education Abroad Office, including:
- Education Abroad 101
- Career Development
During the in-person Pre-Departure Orientation, you will have the opportunity to talk with students who have gone abroad in the past - a great time to ask questions about their experiences and get some tips!
