UTM Abroad Courses

Expand your learning beyond the classroom

Test

Travel to a location pertinent to your studies and deepen your learning through first-hand experience. Before, during, and after the international experience, UTM faculty will connect the course content back to the global experience. This is a unique international opportunity that will allow you to deepen your understanding of course material by travelling to a location related to the subject matter, while maintaining your normal semester structure.

What are UTM Abroad Courses?

UTM Abroad Courses are UTM courses offered through the regular academic calendar that offer you an opportunity to participate in an international experience as part of the course. 

How do I find a UTM Abroad Course?

You can identify a UTM Abroad Course on the Academic Calendar by looking for the INTL designator added to the course title (next to the SSc/SC/HUM course designators). 

What types of courses are available?

There are two types of courses:

- INTL REQ: UTM Abroad Courses that require your participation in the international experience as the course content has been developed around the international component.

- INTL OPT: UTM Abroad Courses offer an international opportunity, but do not require student participation in them to take the course.

How do I enrol in a UTM Abroad Course?

- For INTL-REQ courses, you must apply to the UTM Abroad program first and participate in the selection process;

- For INTL-OPT courses, you must enrol in the course first within the required enrolment deadlines and apply for UTM Abroad once you have enrolled. Make sure to also meet the UTM Abroad deadlines.
