International students

Student exchanges and research activities at UdeM remain possible under certain conditions.

At this time, the Canadian borders are open to international students. 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.).

Important: students carrying out an exchange program at UdeM during the winter 2022 term must arrive in Montréal as soon as possible. Due to the health context, courses are currently offered remotely until January 30, 2022 and will resume face-to-face on January 31.

Upon their arrival in Canada, they will have to undergo a screening test for COVID-19. A positive result will imply an isolation. It is therefore strongly recommended to arrive as early as possible in Montréal to anticipate this possibility. The host department at UdeM will not be able to accommodate students who must isolate themselves when classes resume on campus, or those who cannot fly after contracting the disease.

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

We do not offer a full-time virtual exchange program at this time. Students who would not be able to arrive in Canada for the start of the term or of their stay should contact their academic supervisor (see welcome message) or their research supervisor to assess the possibilities of starting late or to take a part of the course online.


Globalink Research Awards

The reopening of the Globalink Research Awards Program is subject to the regulations of the government of Canada and certain conditions:

  • The feasibility of Globalink research stay depends on the agreement of the research supervisor;
  • 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.).

Should you wish to discuss your project, please contact Anaïs Détolle and Judith Beaulieu as soon as possible.

Stays outside of Canada

Travel outside of Canada is possible and must be declared.
