Canada is the second largest country in the world in terms of area and makes up about two-fifths of the North American continent. In many ways, this country can be seen as a brother to the USA. Similarities can be found in the form of the vast natural landscapes and the pop culture. And yet Canada differs from its individuality-loving brother in its community-oriented mentality and perspective on the world. Multiculturalism and interculturalism are historically deeply rooted here through the coexistence of a British and a French-influenced Canada.

We help you organize a stay abroad at our excellent partner universities such as King's College at the University of Western Ontario, the University of Calgary and the University of New Brunswick. The ISEP program opens up further opportunities, such as Thompson Rivers University or the University of Regina.

The friendships I made there, both with the other exchange students and with the locals, will stay with me for a long time. The semester abroad at King's College was a unique experience for me and changed me as a person.
