Are there any virtual options for exchange or VISP students who are unable to travel to Canada to start their studies in person in the Spring 2021 term?
Yes, you are able to pursue your studies at CapU, as a full-time exchange or VISP student, by online means from your home country and do not require a study permit to do so. To be considered a full-time student, you must be enrolled in a minimum of 9.0 CapU credits. Also, before you are able to register for your online courses, both CapU and your home institution must be in agreement that the courses you plan to complete online would transfer back and meet our partnership agreement.
Please connect with our Study Abroad Team at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn about how we plan to support your virtual study abroad experience at CapU through online meet-ups, by matching you with a CapU buddy from our Study Abroad Ambassador network, and more.
