Wilfrid Laurier University has announced that, for the winter 2021 semester (January to April), the majority of courses will continue to be offered in a remote format. Inbound exchange students will be able to study on exchange at Laurier, but only in a remote context.
Laurier will not be supporting exchange students to travel to Canada to study remotely. This is in effort to control the spread of COVID-19 and the global pandemic.
If you are nominated to study at Laurier this winter, review our list of frequently asked questions to find out how this decision impacts you.
If you are currently a student at one of Laurier's partner schools, we would like to invite you to participate in our student exchange program.
If you are interested in studying at Laurier for one term or a year, but your institution does not have an exchange agreement with Laurier, you may be eligible to register at Laurier on a letter of permission. You will need to submit an application for admission to the Ontario Universities Application Centre and your home university will need to submit a letter of permission and a transcript to Enrolment Services, Wilfrid Laurier University.
We look forward to welcoming you to Laurier!
This information is for students at universities that have exchange agreements with Laurier.
We have made the decision to cancel incoming exchanges for the fall 2020 term. This was a difficult decision to make and we understand that many students will be disappointed.
If you were planning to come to Laurier on exchange for the fall 2020 term, review our list of frequently asked questions to find out how this decision impacts you.
We are still planning to welcome exchange students to Laurier for the winter 2021 term, and we are still accepting nominations.
Considering anticipated delays as COVID-19 impact postsecondary institutions in various ways, we can be flexible with these deadlines. If you anticipate that you will not be able to meet the deadlines, please email Mike Boylan, coordinator, Global Engagement Programming.
Winter 2021 (January to April) nominations are due Sept. 30, 2020. If winter term nominations are submitted earlier, you are more likely to be enrolled in your preferred course choices. Exchange applications will be accepted via the online portal until Oct. 15, 2020.
