Update: October 18, 2021

For more information regarding the measures, please see the Info COVID-19 website. You will also find frequently asked questions relating to stays abroad. At any time, you may contact internationalcovid19@umontreal.ca.

 

International students

Student exchanges and research activities at UdeM are permitted under certain conditions.

At this time, the Canadian borders are open to international students with a study permit. Therefore, Université de Montréal has decided to allow students to carry out their mobility program during the winter term 2022 under certain conditions. UdeM offers most of its teaching activities in-person and will be pleased to welcome you on campus provided the requirements for travel and entry are met. The reopening of mobility programs is subject to the regulations of the government of Canada and certain conditions:

  • The feasibility of an exchange program or research project will depend on each faculty’s or department’s quota;
  • It is the student's responsibility to stay updated on Canada’s latest travel regulations according to their situation and to make sure that requirements for entry are met. Requirements currently in effect may change at any time without prior notice. Please note that all fees are at the cost of the student (immigration paperwork, COVID-19 testing, planning of a possible mandatory quarantine, using the ArriveCAN mobile application, etc.).

The International Affairs Office will contact international students regarding the access conditions to the study programs which interest them.

Students who decide to withdraw their application from the exchange program must inform the Student Mobility Team as soon as possible.
