COVID-19: IAO measures
Update: October 6, 2020
Given the uncertainty of the current health crisis, Université de Montréal will continue holding classes virtually next term and must regretfully prolong the suspension of all inbound and outbound mobility for the winter term 2021 (January through April). This measure applies to students from partner universities outside of Canada who were expected to carry out an exchange program, a research stay or an internship at UdeM.
If students have already received a notice of admission or if their application is still pending on the Student Centre, their file for the winter term 2021 will be closed. Their notice of admission is therefore no longer valid. Please note that an application cannot be deferred to the summer or the fall terms 2021.
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 before October 23rd, 2020 if one of their students qualifies for one of these exceptions in order for an accommodation to be applied.
UdeM is exploring the possibility of offering a virtual mobility pilot program for the winter term 2021, for which travel will not be required. Our partners will be informed of this initiative’s developments in the coming weeks.
Student exchange program
The student exchange program with UdeM’s partner universities located outside of Canada is suspended until further notice. 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 winter 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.
