New Exchange Mentoring Program!
Going on Exchange next Semester?
You already know the academic and personal benefits of study abroad, but have you considered the connection to career and professional skill development?
While your host institution covers in-country orientation to living and studying in a new community, consider expanding your reach to employment and career perspectives of working in a foreign country.
The Student Success Centre is pleased to offer mentor-matches for outbound exchange students with McMaster Alumni living in the area.
The Exchange Mentorship Program pairs students with alumni who are living and work in and around your host university.
Learn about careers, social life, everyday living, skills development outside the classroom and more.
Stay tuned for more information coming your way.
After attending an Exchange Information Session, you can book a one-on-one appointment with our Education Abroad Coordinator. Use this session to learn more about international opportunities, ask questions about McMaster’s exchange partners, and receive support filling out your application for study abroad next year.
