King’s University College is committed to internationalization and intercultural learning. King’s has exchange agreements with over 50 universities in 25 countries. Through King’s University College partnerships, students have studied in China, Japan, UK, France, Germany, South Korea, Brazil, Australia and other countries. Students can study for a term or an academic year while earning academic credits towards their degree and paying your tuition to King’s. They can also participate in summer programs.Studying abroad benefits students academically, professionally and personally.
Through international experience students are able to more fully develop their problem solving skills, applying educational curricula in a real world environment and gaining first-hand exposure to the culture, language, economy and history of another country.
Students are able to initiate and expand professional contacts, and work in new environments while benefiting from practical international experience.
Students often return to their home country with increased self-confidence, maturity, tolerance and an understanding of the world in which they live.
Students have the opportunity to become more culturally sensitive and accepting through intercultural exposure. This is further strengthened by programs which offer students the opportunity to develop their foreign language skills.
Western International’s new certificate program recognizes students’ global and intercultural experience in both academic and extracurricular activities at King's, Western, in the community, elsewhere in Canada, or in another country. Students accumulate points and attend an intercultural workshop. Once completed, the Honor will appear on your Official Academic Record and complement your Western degree with an added intercultural and global element. Learn more...
