Studying abroad is about learning alongside people whose worldviews differ from your own. It's about choosing an academic path that challenges you in new ways. It's about opening doors. 


Study and internship opportunities


A dozen countries; a thousand experiences

Every year, MacEwan University students travel abroad to study, work and gain valuable insights about the world we live in. Discover opportunities that will expand your experience and enhance your education.


We offer two types of study abroad programs. If you choose the exchange option, you enrol at a partner institution as a full-time student for one or two terms. Summer programs also have an academic focus but are shorter, running for three weeks to two months.


We also connect students with internship opportunities which allow you to gain work experience abroad during your academic program. They usually are between two and four months in length over the summer or during semesters. Credited and non-credited internships are available.
