Travel, study, explore: UM Global’s International Student Exchange program is accepting applications
With UM Global, it’s easier and costs less than you think
The cost to Kayla Moore for taking courses in Australia, including flights and the visa, was comparable to enrolling in them at the U of M. In addition to seeing the world, her exchange came with a surprising benefit: she found her academic love, and is now pursing her PhD.
Many UofM students want to study abroad but fear a burdensome price tag and confusing paperwork. Yet, as Moore discovered, the programs offered by UM Global are designed to address these issues: students pay UofM tuition while on exchange, and the International Centre helped to facilitate credit transfer.
“They were so helpful. They offered an incredible amount of guidance and encouraged me to apply for scholarships that covered so many of my costs,” Moore says. “And it was really easy to have my credits transfer back to the U of M. I picked the courses myself ahead of time and they looked at the list and told me in advance what would transfer, so I could tailor it that way.”
