International Opportunities for Students

An International Opportunity for Students is defined as one of the following activities that students can undertake at a college or university outside of Canada for a specific period of time:

  • Transfer Opportunities allow a student to complete one or two years at COTR and additional years at a partner institution. Fees are paid at the institution the student is studying at.
  • Exchange Opportunities allow a student to study for one or two semesters at a partner institution while paying COTR tuition fees.
  • Study Abroad Opportunities provide the student with the option of taking courses at a partner institution for any duration of time while paying tuition fees directly to the partner institution.
  • Practicum/Work Placement Opportunities offer a student the means through which he/she can complete a practical part of his/her studies (practicum, internship, work placement) with the collaboration of a partner institution.
