The Summer Abroad programs are designed to enrich students’ academic lives by providing an exciting and educational international experience. Students complete full-year University of Toronto undergraduate degree credit courses from the Faculty of Arts & Science that are relevant to each location. Relatively small classes (about 25 students on average) are taught by University of Toronto professors or faculty from the host university. All classes, with the exception of language courses, are taught in English.

The course list has been updated with 2016 information. We are currently finalized program details and those sections of the website will be updated by early December.
New for 2016 will be a program in Greece! Based in Thessaloniki, students will study “Modern Greece, the Balkans and the European Union” and receive a POL300Y credit.
Also new for 2016 is a sociology course titled “Contemporary Chinese Society.” Students will spend four weeks in China exploring social change and development by meeting with different groups of people including scholars, village heads, migrant workers, women’s groups and policy makers.
