Study Abroad Programs provide students with opportunities to study in a:

  • short summer program at an institution that is partnered with MSVU; or
  • full semester or one academic year at institutions that are NOT a current MSVU partner.

Study Abroad means you will pay fees to your host institution at the rate that they set for visiting students in their programs.
