Short-Term Summer Programs

Yet another great way to travel, experience another culture AND study abroad — for credit and also to experience a trip abroad on a budget.

Many of our bilateral exchange partners offer Summer Short-Term Study Abroad Programs. These programs can run two, three, four and six weeks. Students can participate during the months of May, June and July. These programs typically cover accommodation costs, some meals and cultural activities. Students will continue to register and pay tuition to TRU for one or two courses like a traditional exchange, but pay all other fees directly to the partner school.

These summer programs transfer back to 1 or 2 courses at TRU following approval from a Program Advisor. If you are not sure about diving into a full semester abroad, let this short-term experience be the testing ground to get your feet wet!
