Outgoing Exchange Programs

Huron students have the opportunity to study in another country for one semester or one full year.  The experience of another culture and country is enriching academically, personally and professionally. It is strongly recommended for all students! 

Participating in the exchange program is an excellent way to:

  • Gain a different perspective on your studies
  • Improve your language skills or learn a new language
  • Develop problem-solving and adaptability skills
  • Expand your personal and professional network by meeting faculty, staff, students, and employers outside of your community
  • Develop transferable skills that can be beneficial to your career.
  • Travel and experience different cultures

Outgoing Fact Sheet 

Want to head somewhere different?

Students who wish to study at a university that Huron or Western do not have an exchange agreement with can do so through the letter of permission process. The student applies to the school independently and works with an Academic Advisor to approve his/her course selection for credit towards their Huron degree.

  • Huron's experiential learning opportunities enabled me to extend my knowledge far beyond what I learned in class. This helped me develop a robust understanding and skillset that I am able to apply to my pursuits of Leadership with Heart.

  • Everything that has happened to me personally and professionally since then has been shaped by the decision to go to Yonsei. Because of my time there, I developed a strong interest in inter-Korean relations and the prospects for Korean unification; I wrote my 4th year thesis on that issue

Funding for Outgoing Exchange Students

Huron's generous supporters have provided funding for students who wish to participate in study abroad opportunities. 

Patricia Boucher Memorial International Exchange Travel Grant
Hugh B. and Dorothy Rooney International Travel Bursary
Nancy and Keith Sumner Fund for International Studies

Established in 2000 in memory of Patricia Boucher, an exchange student from Universite de Versailles Saint-Quentin, through the generous support of her family and the many friends she made among the students at Huron University College.

It is intended to assist a student with travel expenses associated with the Huron/Universite de Versailles Saint-Quentin exchange program. 

The recipient must be registered in a full-time program at Huron University and demonstrate financial need.

If no Huron student is eligible, the bursary may assist a Versailles student on exchange at Huron or assist a Huron student participating in an exchange with another European university.

Value: approx. $2,000 (open to several students)
 

 

The Bursary is intended to assist a third-year student with the added expenses incurred in a program of study abroad.

The recipient must be a registered full-time student at Huron and demonstrate financial need. The Rooney family established The Hugh B. and Dorothy Rooney International Travel Bursary in 1996 to honour Hugh and Dorothy Rooney, long-term friends and members of the Huron Community. 

Mr. Rooney served Huron with distinction in many roles from 1959 to 1972 including lecturer in Business and Economics, Dean of Residence, Comptroller, Corporation and Board Member, Bursar, and later Assistant Vice-Principal at Western University.

Mrs. Rooney was known as “nurse” to many students when the Rooney family lived at Huron University College. Sadly, Mrs. Rooney passed away in January, 1995.

Value: approx. $1,000

 

Established in 2006 by Nancy and Keith Sumner, this Fund provides financial support to a student or students for study abroad at a university with which Huron has a partnership agreement, for credit towards their academic degree at Huron, and who qualifies for the study abroad program based on criteria established by Huron University. 

Keith Sumner is a long-time friend of Huron who has served as President of The Huron University Foundation and, prior to that, as Chair of its Investment Committee.

Value: approx. $1,000
