Semester exchange programs allow students the opportunity to earn USF college credit from a diverse set of subjects abroad, while still paying an equivalent to USF cost. Students are enrolled abroad and take classes, live, and socialize with local and other international students, gaining a truly enriching experience and in-depth cultural immersion for one to two semesters. This particular program is taught in Montreal, by Canadian professors, thereby allowing you to fully immerse yourself in the local culture and school system.
Exchange programs are competitive and students are encouraged to begin the application process early to better focus on their personal statement and gather the needed recommendations.
An international destination of choice, Montréal is easily accessed by land, water and air. Downtown is a mere 20 minutes from the Pierre-Elliott Trudeau International Airport, which handles some 600 flights daily. Visitors will find this compact island city great for walking, and can easily--and safely-- explore its vibrant neighborhoods on foot, at any time of the day or night. Montréal is also multicultural, boasting more than 80 ethnic communities, and enjoys an outstanding reputation worldwide for gourmet dining. Public transit is not only affordable, it's also a great way to get around the city. Quick, safe and clean, the metro connects downtown to major tourism attractions, as well as to numerous bus stops and train stations. In addition, cycling enthusiasts enjoy 450 km of bicycle paths, many of which lead to major tourist areas.
Concordia University can trace its origins to 1974 with its name deriving from the motto of the City of Montreal "Concordia Salus" which means "well-being through harmony." This thought combined with many efforts has made the University of Concordia one of Canada's most dynamic and innovative universities, with its roots of over 180 years of pursuing academic excellence. Concordia offers over 500 undergraduate and graduate degree programs, as well as many continuing education, distance learning and executive education offerings.
