Immersion Programs

A number of immersion opportunities are available through Western. Students can take a Western french credit course in Trois-Pistoles, Québec during five-week intersession and summer sessions. A large number of Government bursaries are available. These cover tuition and room and board with a Québécois family; in addition, generous discounts for travel by rail are usually available. Students doing an honors degree in French have the option of spending their third year in France at the Université de Nice or the Université de Tours, or the universities of the Rhône-Alpes region of France. Spanish students may choose to study in Spain, Mexico or Cuba. Students who speak German may study at a number of German universities through the Baden-Württemberg exchange program. For students with above-average grades, more than a dozen scholarships are available for summer or year-long study in Québec or abroad.

Western provides the best student experience among Canada's leading research-intensive universities.
