Humber’s Semester Abroad Exchange Program is your opportunity to experience the world and gain valuable personal and professional skills while receiving Humber credit!
Spend one to two semesters at an academic institution abroad while earning credit toward your program at Humber! Semester abroad, or exchange, is your chance to try something new, be ahead of the curve, and add global experience to your program before graduation. Semester exchanges are set up between Humber and an academic institution we are partnered with.

The International Office, as well as my lecturers, supported me during the entire semester, ensuring that I have everything that I needed for the remote learning during the first two months of the pandemic."
