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. This program is administered by International Services and by specific academic departments. As well, some departments offer international field courses.
All exchange students pay their tuition fees to Brock. Brock provides travel awards to students demonstrating financial need (up to $4000 to students registered full-time in the Student Exchange Program). Brock students can continue to access their OSAP and Canada Student Loan plans, while studying abroad on this Program.
Participants can apply as early as finishing year 1 of studies, 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.
