UQAM cancels exchanges to Turkey

August 4, 2016

In light of the political situation in Turkey, the International Relations Service at Université du Québec à Montréal has announced that it is suspending student exchanges with the country for the 2016-2017 year. UQAM has also announced that, since Global Affairs Canada is recommending against non-essential travel to Turkey, students visiting the country will not be eligible for mobility grants. The release also points to Universities Canada’s recent statement on the situation in Turkey that expresses concerns about the treatment of thousands of academics in the country. UQAM | Universities Canada
