The University has made the difficult decision to cancel in-person international mobility for the fall term, and this for outgoing and incoming students and for research internships, coop terms, field research courses, etc. We felt it was important to advise our students of a final decision before they started making concrete plans for their departure. Because the pandemic is escalating at different rates and times around the world, we have assessed that the risks remain too high to allow our students to travel this fall.
The various units responsible for coordinating these mobility opportunities are working closely with their students to find alternatives and/or postpone their international experience.
We encourage students who are affected by this decision to contact their academic or administrative units to coordinate the next steps. For all other questions, please contact the International Office at uointl@uOttawa.ca.
