Studying Abroad

"The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes."                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                               - Marcel Proust

As part of your Political Science degree, you may have the opportunity to study abroad for one or two semesters at one of our partner institutions. Experiencing a different culture, academic system and simply learning the politics of another country by placing yourself in it can be a truly invigorating experience.

You can study in one of our 30 partner institutions and your time spent abroad will count towards your degree at SFU. By representing SFU and the Political Sciences department, you assist in being part of our international network and will bring back a new global perspective to your classes and your studies. 

Before applying, you should bear in mind that your eligibility is dependent upon a number of factors, however you can find out more about this on the Study Abroad page.
