The ISSO offers a number of opportunities for students to go abroad during their time at Carleton University. Many of these opportunities also allow students to earn credit towards their degree. Faculty members play an important role in supporting student opportunities abroad. A common source of inspiration for students going abroad is information or encouragement provided by a faculty member or an advisor.

Visit the ISSO or book an information session

The ISSO team supports international and exchange students at Carleton, and promotes international opportunities to students interested in going abroad. Invite an ISSO team member to visit your next staff meeting to discuss how we can support you as you work with international students, or just to learn more about the activities and services offered.

Encourage your students to go abroad

  • Invite an exchange ambassador of staff member to present to your students
  • Contact the ISSO to request material or a specialized presentation to highlight programs that would work best for your students
  • Incorporate an international dimension in class lectures
  • Send your students to the ISSO for an “on-campus field trip”
