Studying abroad is one of the most amazing things a student can do during their time at University. With over 60 partner schools around the world, UPEI offers many possible study abroad locations. 

Studying at one of our partner schools will allow you to:

  1. Take unique courses in your field of study that are not offered at UPEI;
  2. Gain independence and other new life skills;
  3. Make new friends from around the world;
  4. See the world first hand; and
  5. Enhance your employability after graduation.

You will not regret your adventure!!

Dispelling myths about studying abroad:

  1. All courses you take at the host school will be transferred back to UPEI—you will not fall behind.
  2. All tuition fees and student fees are paid to UPEI while you are gone—you will not incur huge host school fees (small fees may apply).
  3. Most of our partner schools teach in English, regardless of the national language.
  4. International students can also study abroad—you do not have to be a Canadian citizen (some program exceptions).
  5. You are still eligible for student loans while studying abroad.
  6. International placements are options for our co-op students.
