Summer Programs

Updated June 14, 2021


Notice for all upcoming travel:

The safety of Ryerson community members is of utmost importance. Ryerson has suspended all future university-sanctioned international travel and in-person activity abroad for students until the end of the fall 2021 semester. Ryerson urges faculty members to carefully consider any upcoming travel plans. When possible, consider cancelling your plans entirely, or postponing to a later date and delaying financial commitments. 

For more information for students, visit our Safety Abroad page.

For more information for faculty and staff, visit our International Risk Management page.

Ryerson has suspended all university-sanctioned, in-person activity abroad for students until August 31, 2021. 

However, virtual global learning activities are still permitted. Whether it’s a virtual internship or a virtual course-based learning opportunity, you still have options to virtually engage with and learn from diverse global perspectives, cultures and knowledge. 

External Summer Programs

Many of our partner institutions around the world offer short-term summer programs in a range of subject areas and disciplines. 

Summer programs are generally regarded as 'short-term' programs that are distinct from exchanges. This means you pay tuition and/or program fees directly to the host institution.

How to Apply:

Program requirements and application procedures vary by institution. Please visit the program websites, listed below, for further information regarding application guidelines.

Ryerson International does not play a role in the application process for the international summer programs.

Recieving Credit: 

Some partners may be offering in-person summer programs. At time time, Ryerson has suspended all university-related, in-person activity for Summer 2021 (until August 31).  Students who participate in an in-person program this summer will not be able to recieve Transfer Credits through the Letter of Permission (LOP), opens in new window process.  


Students must pay program fees directly to the host university organizing the summer course/program. Some of the institutions listed below offer a discounted program fee to students who are from universities with whom they have an existing student exchange agreement with. You should check with the university directly to see if Ryerson is a partner and if you are able to access a discounted rate.
