Discover e3


Why choose 1 when you can have all 3?

The University of Alberta’s e3 is a unique education abroad experience offering students the flexibility to choose from three experiences, all in one location:

  • language study
  • international internship
  • academic coursework

e3 programs fuse academics with international study and work experience. Field trips, excursions and guest speakers will allow students to learn beyond the classroom. All e3 courses, including language classes, allow students to earn academic credit from the University of Alberta*

Whether you're in Berlin, Curitiba, Washington D.C or in Grenoble, you'll get to pair theory with practice, the local with the international, as you work, study or learn a new language!

Earn University of Alberta Credit

All e3 courses, including language classes, allow students to earn academic credit from the University of Alberta, which can be applied directly to their degree at UAlberta, or used as transfer credit at their home institution.
