Work or Study Abroad

Employers value global experience and education. By going abroad, you can develop a broader, more global network, build language skills and develop other intercultural competencies which are valuable in today’s global marketplace. 

Whether you're interested in study, research or an internship abroad, the Centre for International Experience (CIE) offers many opportunities that will fit your academic program and interests.

Graduate students from U of T (and visiting graduate students) can find more information about international opportunities through the School of Graduate Studies (SGS).
