“At the Université de Montréal, we believe that travel broadens young people’s minds.”
– Guy Breton, UdeM Rector
Would you like to spend a study or research stay abroad, or do a joint PhD? With over a hundred partner institutions around the world, anything is possible!
While remaining a UdeM student and paying UdeM tuition fees, you can study at the university of your choice for one or two terms and enjoy a tremendous learning experience, immersed in a new culture in a different land. In addition, generous scholarships are available for a wide range of students to fund their stays abroad. Click on the link below for more information.
There are all kinds of experts available at the UdeM, to help you fulfil your ambition of studying abroad:
- The Maison internationale, your first source for all questions and information about studying abroad and the scholarships available. Check out its website (in French) and meet its advisors.
- The person responsible for exchanges in your Department, who will be happy to advise you on preparing a proper study contract (choice of host institution and courses). Make an appointment with your Departmental contact long before the deadline for submitting your application to the Maison internationale. At least two meetings will be necessary.
All applications must be submitted by the end of February (in French) for study trips in the following year, whether you are considering an exchange for a whole year or for just the fall or winter term.
You can also apply in September to study abroad in the winter term, but note that places and destinations are limited. Ask at the Maison internationale.
TASSEP: An exchange program for science students!
The UdeM is lucky to be part of a network that offers destinations and institutions exclusively for science students, called the Trans-Atlantic Science Student Exchange Program (TASSEP).
This program opens the doors to many European universities for you. You can study in Austria, Denmark, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Scotland, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland. Take advantage of this great opportunity to add an international dimension to your university experience, give your degree added value and expand your professional horizons.
Every year, hundreds of international students from all over the world come to study at the Université de Montréal. See what's on offer as part of student exchanges on the Bureau des étudiants internationaux website.
The joint PhD program, thanks to international agreements arranged by the Faculty of Arts and Science, lets you earn a degree from the UdeM and a university in France, Belgium or Switzerland. Such a dual degree opens doors to a variety of academic settings and gives you credentials recognized on two continents.
