Humber’s Semester Abroad Exchange Program is your opportunity to experience the world and academics in a completely new global approach!
Watch the video to hear Humber students talk about the benefits of spending a semester abroad.
Academic exchange opportunities are your chance to try something new, be ahead of the curve, and add global experience to your program before graduation. Exchanges are set up between Humber and an academic institution of similar stature abroad. We make an agreement that Humber students are able to study at these institutions, and vice versa!
What does that mean for you? A key advantage is that you pay your regular tuition and fees to Humber, and are not subject to international student fees at the partner school! Since you remain a Humber student while you are abroad, you may be eligible for OSAP as well.
We really want students to take advantage of this amazing experience; in fact, we even have a Humber’s Study Abroad/International Mobility Bursary for additional financial support. You also benefit from the Humber study abroad alumni, who have studied at the same institution in the past, and faculty/staff who have worked closely with our partners to build the relationship between our schools. Academic credit successfully completed abroad will be transferred to your Humber credential, to keep you on schedule for graduation.
Plus, the opportunity to study abroad in a different country is… pretty awesome, right?

Humber students may independently request to attend an accredited college or university abroad by attaining approval from your Program Coordinator in the form of a signed Letter of Permission. Non-exchange opportunities are not limited to institutions that have signed a partnership agreement with Humber, and can open up many new possibilities. However, students studying on non-exchange programs abroad are subject to paying the tuition set by the host institution and are often accountable for higher international student fees. You will also be responsible for more upfront research as the school you select may be unfamiliar to Humber faculty and staff.
Please review and complete the entire Application Kit which includes detailed instructions on the application process, Key Contacts, guidelines to writing a Letter of Intent, Terms and Conditions and the Application Form.
All applicants are required to have a GPA of 70% or have written permission from their Program Coordinator. You can access your Grade Report from MyHumber.
