COVID-19: IAO measures


Update: February 11, 2021

The Canadian government continues to advise avoiding all non-essential travel outside of Canada. Faced with the uncertainty in which the health context is unfolding and noting the slow progress of vaccination campaigns across the world, Université de Montréal has decided to extend the suspension of incoming student mobility for the summer term 2021 (May to August). This measure applies to students of partner universities outside of Canada who where expected to carry out an exchange program, a research stay or an internship at UdeM.

Please note that the decision to maintain or suspend student mobility for the fall term 2021 is not known yet. We will inform our partners as soon as possible.

Incoming students

Faced with the uncertainty in which the health context is unfolding and noting the slow progress of vaccination campaigns across the world, Université de Montréal has decided to extend the suspension of incoming student mobility for the summer term 2021 (May to August). This measure applies to students of partner universities outside of Canada who where expected to carry out an exchange program, a research stay or an internship at UdeM.

Some accommodations may be possible (for example, for Globalink Award recipients, mobility activities that are contributory to a program of study and essential for graduation and students enrolled in joint PhD or joint Master’s programs). Partners must contact ou Mobility Team if one of their students qualifies for one of these exceptions in order for an accommodation to be applied.


Student exchange program

The student exchange program with UdeM’s partner universities located outside of Canada is suspended. This suspension applies to students from abroad who wished to participate in our exchange program as part of an inter-university agreement, despite the measure recently announced by the Government of Canada.


Globalink Research Awards

A Globalink research stay at UdeM during the summer term 2021 will only be permitted if health and travel conditions allow, AND if the research is contributory to the student’s program of study and essential for his ou her graduation. Here are the steps in order to determine if a research stay will be possible:

  • The student’s supervisor of the home university must send an email to Anaïs Détolle and Judith Beaulieu to authorize travel and confirm the essential and contributory character of the research stay for his or her academic course. 
  • In addition, the student’s supervisor at UdeM must send an email to Anaïs Détolle and Judith Beaulieu to authorize travel and confirm the essential and contributory character of the research stay for his or her academic course. 
  • Once these emails are received, we will determine if the student’s research stay at UdeM can be carried out.

In order to determine if a stay can be deferred or to request for a derogation, students must get in touch quickly with Anaïs Détolle and Judith Beaulieu.
