Study Abroad

Interested in Studying Abroad? Studying at one of our partner schools will allow you to explore countries you've always wanted to visit, take unique courses in your field of study (or other electives), gain independence and other new life skills, and make new friends from around the world!

What you need to know about studying abroad as a UPEI student

  • All courses you take at the host school will be transferred back to UPEI so you will not fall behind.
  • All tuition fees and student fees are paid to UPEI while you travel, so there are no huge host school fees (small fees may apply).
  • Most of our partner schools teach in English, regardless of the national language.
  • International students can also study abroad—you do not have to be a Canadian citizen (some program exceptions).
  • You are still eligible for student loans while studying abroad.
  • International placements are options for our co-op students.
