Why Study Abroad?



The Government of Canada has eased some restrictions on international travel and advises travellers to practise precautions based on their destination.

In response to this, UR International is pleased to announce that the institutional international travel restrictions has now been lifted, and is happy to support students pursuing outbound mobility starting from Spring/Summer 2022, which encompasses:

  • Regular study abroad exchange programs
  • Short-term exchanges
  • International practicum, internship, and fieldwork placements
  • Faculty-led study tours
  • Faculty approved international conferences or consortiums

Furthermore, the UR Study Abroad & Global Mobility team has implemented additional risk management and safety measures for UofR students participating in in-person mobility.

Global Skills Opportunity Scholarship:

UR International is proud to share that our Canadian undergraduate students will benefit from a total of $1 million in combined contributions from the Government of Canada and the University of Regina.

The program will support students with experiences such as: international exchange, internship, practicum fieldwork, study tour, and international research programs. 

While open to all Canadian post-secondary students, the national program targets groups for whom international experiences have traditionally been less accessible - specifically Indigenous students, students from low-income backgrounds (for example receiving student loans) and students with disabilities.

Students eligible for the GSO scholarship could receive up to $10,000!!

Please visit our GSO webpage or contact UR Study Abroad for more information.

*Please note that for research-related travel, graduate students are required to consult the VPR's research travel guidelines and policies

Graduate students who are wishing to conduct travel outside of Canada that is essential to their research can contact the Associate Vice-President Research*
