Our study abroad options

Study abroad options offer a chance to study abroad while earning credit toward your MtA degree. They vary in length, including for an academic year, for a semester, and during summer months.

Study abroad options:

  • 1) Exchange programs — study at one of our international partner institutions in another country, and pay tuition to Mount Allison.
  • 2) Independent study abroad — study at an international university of your choice, and pay tuition directly to your host institution.

Create your own international experience 

Grants and funding are available for students to create their own experiences, including summer internships and volunteering.

Develop, plan, and implement your own experience during the summer with a host organization of your choice.

Funds may be used to cover or supplement the costs of transportation, subsistence, accommodation, supplies, and expenses associated with your experience.

Funding opportunities are available for both national and international experiences.
