Exchange Program Overview

The Geography Department encourages students in year two or three of their studies in any geography program to participate in the International Exchange Program offered by Western. Please visit the Western International Exchange website for more information about possible destinations, application process, and important dates.

We have an exchange agreement with one United Kingdom university, Southampton. It is open to all geography students and is only offered in the second term of each year. Western undergraduates have also gone to St Andrews, Lancaster, and University of East Anglia on an exchange. Any interested students should apply through the Exchange Office.

New exchange program for geography students for 2015-2016!

Exciting news! The exchange program with the Chinese University of Hong Kong is now active. For more information and application process visit the UWO Horizons website. You can see the programs available without logging in, just click on the Search Programs button at the top of the page.

The Geography Department at Western has a special arrangement with the Department of Geography and Resource Management at The Chinese University of Hong Kong, visit their course catalog and look under GRMD for geography course descriptions.  For specific course equivalencies ask Angelica Lucaci, alucaci@uwo.ca.

If you are thinking about going on exchange next year, plan to attend an information session offered by the International Exchange Program.
