Expanding Student Pathways to Study and Work Abroad

This project seeks to lower barriers to participation in outbound mobility activity for students in highly structured degree programs by integrating academic exchange and international internship pathways into existing curriculum. Working with several academic departments at Concordia, international university partners, and on-campus units, the project will coordinate this by developing pre-approved exchange course packages and creating international research co-op opportunities. 

By reducing barriers to participation and ensuring that students receive academic credit for activities, the project has the potential to significantly increase student participation in outbound mobility at Concordia by 50 Р80%. These interventions can be easily adapted to multiple academic programs, allowing for potential future growth in outbound mobility across the university.
