Student exchanges are an important means of gaining international experience. The Center has Canadian Studies exchange agreement with Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia and Trent University in Peterborough, Ontario. Students who meet exchange criteria are eligible to enroll at either university for a semester or academic year and will receive fully transferable credits toward their WWU degree programs. Additionally, students who wish to study French for a semester or academic year are eligible for "in state status" at universities in Quebec. Other excellent Canadian exchange opportunities are available through the Office of International Programs and Exchanges.

Trent University

Peterborough, Ontario, Canada

The new student exchange program between Western Washington University and Trent University begins Fall 2004. This exchange agreement is an exciting opportunity for Western students to learn more about Canada, their closest neighbor, in a familiar setting: both Western and Trent are strong liberal arts universities located in historically and culturally important small cities, and both have Canadian Studies programs that are recognized as among the best in their respective countries. Students of high academic quality will be selected to participate in the exchange program. The exchange will normally be for one academic year; however requests for term and quarter exchanges can be negotiated. Credit hours taken at Trent University are fully transferable to the student's degree program at Western. Learn more about Trent University
