If you’re a Humber College student longing to travel but can’t take time off school to satisfy it, look no further than Humber’s international opportunities. Offering a variety of destinations and financial aid to help get you there, Humber’s got you! Read on to learn more about the International Centre’s programs and key dates for applications.
Academic Summer Programs:
If you’re a jet setter in training, look no further than Humber’s summer abroad program. A shorter commitment than its exchange semester counterpart, the school’s summer abroad placements typically last anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks. With this summer’s host institutions located in Scotland, Denmark, New Zealand and more, there’s bound to be somewhere you’ll enjoy journeying to!
APPLICATION DEADLINE: February 23, 2018
Exchange Semester Abroad:
Feeling especially adventurous? Then you and Humber’s semester abroad program would likely be a good fit. Lasting around the time of a usual semester, this international opportunity leaves you lots of time to explore your surroundings, wherever you may voyage to.
During the program’s 2018-2019 season, why not spend time in the UK, Japan, or Finland? With Humber’s exchange semesters, there’s the added bonus of no international fees to worry about on your end. Just pay your tuition as you usually would through Humber, and that’s it! For other expenses that may crop up, like airfare and insurance, peruse the next paragraph to learn more about Humber’s financial aid option for students studying abroad.

Study Abroad/International Mobility Bursary:
A common barrier for those looking to go global is finances. Sometimes savings, OSAP, and/or family contributions just don’t cut it. However, if you’re a Humber student, fear not! The college offers a bursary exclusively for students who are completing an academic experience outside of Canada. You can receive up to $2500! The amount you receive (if your application is approved) depends on multiple factors, such as: how much financial aid you’ve demonstrated you need, how long your trip is, and how many students apply for the bursary.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: At least 30 days prior to departure.
So, now you have the tools to mix your studies with travel and know how to get the money to do so. What are you waiting for? Let your dreams come true and apply for an international opportunity through Humber today!
