Global learning, for global citizens


The opportunity for students to study and experience learning in another country hones their leadership skills and provides them with advantages that can last a lifetime.

Thanks to donor supported programs like the Global Opportunities Awards, and Alternative Spring Break, we’ve broken down barriers to enable more than 2,200 students to travel and learn abroad in more than 40 countries each year, helping them gain valuable intercultural skills and global experience, all while exploring, learning and growing as individuals.

Increasing the diversity of our student population enriches the ideas and debate in our classrooms. We are grateful to those donors who are enabling Western to attract international students whose potential to learn vastly outstrips their financial ability to come to Canada to study.
