Spend one or two semesters abroad on exchange
Did you know you can spend an entire semester (or two) abroad? Depending on your program, we offer opportunities to complete an exchange in countries like Denmark, Japan and more. The longer duration of exchanges allows you to immerse yourself in the culture you are visiting. You will not only learn your course curriculum - you will also get a truly international education!
An exchange with one of our partner schools gives you the opportunity to take credits abroad, explore new cultures, learn new ways of doing, and expand your personal and professional network.
While on exchange, you will pay tuition to George Brown but enjoy the benefits of the partner school. Academic credits are transferable from the school abroad back to George Brown upon the successful completion of the program.

We have opportunities for current George Brown students to go abroad through exchanges. You can learn about the application process below.
