Study abroad programs
A number of study abroad opportunities exist: group study programs, exchange, and visiting students.
Group Study Programs are University of Calgary courses taken at an offsite location. Tuition is paid to the University of Calgary, and an instructor from Calgary will accompany you and your classmates for one semester. The Schulich School of Engineering takes an annual study abroad trip to Greece (ENGG 407 and ENGG 393, a complementary studies option), China (for mechanical engineering students) and, in 2014, Switzerland (electrical engineering). There are also a number of Group Study Programs offered to all University of Calgary students.
Exchange students are part of a balanced exchange program (by formal agreement) between the University of Calgary and another university. In this case, you pay your tuition to the University of Calgary and arrangements are made to bring a student from your host university to study here.
