Ontario Universities International

Expand your horizons... study abroad.

Ontario/Rhône-Alpes, France

The ORA University Student Exchange Program is a collaborative initiative with 12 universities in Rhône-Alpes, 14 universities in Ontario and the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities.

ORA has been in existence for over 20 years.  Each year, 65 University students are selected from each region to participate in the regular exchange program. 

The ORA program provides international study and research opportunities at the undergraduate and graduate levels across the curriculum.

The exchange is a personal opportunity for students to pursue their studies at one of the participating universities while remaining a degree candidate at their home university, and to grow from the experience of living in a foreign culture.  It also allows for language improvement.

Rhône-Alpes (RA), a beautiful region located in the South East area of France is close to Switzerland and Italy. The Universities in RA are located in 5 cities namely Lyon, Grenoble, St. Etienne, Chambéry and Annecy.  

Ontario, one of 10 Provinces in Canada is located between the Provinces of Quebec on the east side, Manitoba on the west side and the United States on the south side.  The Partner Universities are located across the Province.
