Exchange Opportunities for Language Majors

Students may spend a year abroad  at a university in a country where the language and culture they are studying is spoken. They will take courses in that language at the same tuition rate as courses at the University of Windsor. Credit for those courses will be transferred to the University of Windsor toward meeting their degree requirement. Many funding opportunities to reduce the cost of living abroad are available.
