Centre for International Programs

In keeping with the mission statement of the University of Guelph, the Centre for International Programs (CIP) fosters international and intercultural learning among members of our campus community to stimulate a sense of partnership and global responsibility as scholars and citizens.

The Centre encourages the development of global awareness in academic offerings, helps to initiate study abroad opportunities for graduate students and promotes partnerships with universities around the world.

The Centre conducts pre-departure orientations on-line using DepartSmart for all students travelling outside of Canada for any University related activity. CIP also oversees the University’s Safe International Travel Policy and the emergency response protocol for overseas programs. In addition, CIP administers the mandatory Guard me insurance plan for student travel.

The Centre’s website http://www.uoguelph.ca/cip/ has information on internship, study and research opportunities overseas, scholarships and application forms for University of Guelph study abroad programs.
