Students usually apply for an exchange/study abroad program in their second year and take part in their third year. Eligibility is based on academic achievement in first and second year and a student’s suitability to represent Western abroad. MIT students are required to have a minimum 70.0% cumulative average when applying for an exchange/study abroad program. This average must be maintained until departure. Students selected to study at one of the partner universities pay tuition fees to Western. Travel costs and daily living expenses are the responsibility of the student. Students registered in combined programs may explore exchange opportunities with their other subject area.
