International Study and Exchange Programs  
Brock encourages its students to participate in study programs at universities in other countries. The overall objective of these programs is to promote international understanding and co-operation at the University, while the specific objective is to assist students in all disciplines to broaden their education by earning full university credits and by living in another culture. Brock has programs, both in English speaking and non-English speaking countries. These programs are administered by the Office of International Services and by specific academic departments/centres. As well, some departments/centres offer summer courses abroad. Through Brock's programs, students can become international scholars for little more than it costs to study at Brock. All exchange students pay their tuition fees to Brock, as well as residence fees for certain exchange programs. Brock provides a travel award of, minimum $1,000 to students registered full-time for two academic terms or more in an approved Student International mobility program. Students registered for one academic term in an approved Student International Mobility program will receive minimum financial support in the amount of $500 as a travel award. Brock students have access to OSAP and Canada Student Loan plans, and may apply for Brock University Exchange Program and Study Abroad Program Bursaries to help them pay for their year abroad while they earn credits towards the completion of their degree at Brock. Participants must normally apply as full-time students during their second year of study, have a minimum B average and meet the pertinent language and other academic requirements. Though some of Brock's exchange partner institutions have a different nominal credit weight for a year of study, a Brock student who is enrolled on exchange as a full-time student in a degree program at an international partner institution will be granted the full complement of 5.0 Brock credits for a year abroad, or 2.5 credits for a semester abroad. Course selection for exchange programs must be done well in advance of departure, in consultation with the Office of International Services or the relevant academic department/centre administering the exchange. Since German and Japanese study abroad programs require a minimum level of language competence, students are strongly advised to have introductory high school background in these languages or obtain introductory language credits upon entering Brock. Students interested in taking part in international programs should consider enrolling in the Minor in International Studies, which may be combined with a Major program of the student's choice. An updated list of exchange opportunities, and details about the exchanges can be found at at: http://www.brocku.ca/international/ One year (2 academic terms) or 1 academic term Student International Mobility programs administered by the Office of International Services.
