UOttawa bans university-related international travel until 2021

May 13, 2020

The University of Ottawa has banned all international university-related travel for the remainder of 2020. This decision will see all student exchange programs cancelled for the fall semester. “Though we realize how disappointing this news is, it is our duty to ensure that our mobility programs can be carried out in the safest conditions possible, and this is unfortunately not the case at present,” explained UOttawa’s International Office in an email. Effected students may opt to defer their exchange until winter 2021 if possible, take online courses with the university with which they are registered, or cancel the program. Fulcrum (ON)
