Meet Sadie Dundas

Sadie, a third-year English Studies student received a scholarship for her exchange program at the University of St. Andrews in Scotland! Students selected for this program are awarded a $7,000 scholarship from the Canadian Robert T. Jones Jr. Foundation. 

 "My time on exchange has been incredible. There are a lot of school events, and I have made lasting friendships with people from around the world and memories I will not soon forget. If you're thinking of going on an exchange -- just do it. It is life-changing."

Western International Introduces the Global and Intercultural Engagement Honour 

Contemporary globalized society favours university graduates with global and intercultural competencies, and Western International's new Global and Intercultural Engagement Honour will recognize students' experience and engagement in such activities during their time at Western. Once achieved, the Honour will appear on the student's official transcript upon graduation. The structure of this program allows students to incorporate both curricular and extracurricular activities. Students awarded this honour will be global-ready graduates: they will have the skills required to negotiate an increasingly globalized reality, both professionally and personally. Learn more
