Our services

The International Office offers advice and support to faculty and staff, from uOttawa and international institutions, on all aspects of international engagement, including establishing exchange agreements, building international partnerships, and hosting international delegations.

We also facilitate the development of strategies necessary to meet the University’s academic objectives related to internationalization.
