International Study and Exchange Programs
Brock encourages its students to participate in the Student Exchange Program 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 is partnered with both English speaking and non-English speaking countries. This program is administered by International Services and by specific academic departments. As well, some departments offer international field courses.
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. Brock provides travel awards to students demonstrating financial need ($500 to students registered full-time in the Student Exchange Program for each academic term; $1000 for both terms). Brock students can continue to access their OSAP and Canada Student Loan plans, while stuying abroad on this Program.
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, and successfully completes pre-approved courses, will be granted 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 International Services and the relevant academic department.
Students interested in taking part in international programs should consider enrolling in the Minor in Intercultural Studies, which may be combined with a Major program of the student's choice.
