WHAT is a Global Learning Experience?

Global Experiences are experiential learning programs and enrichment opportunities that connect students and staff to global perspectives, people, places and spaces. Centennial College offers many types of global learning opportunities to fit your academic, professional and personal interests. Each opportunity is unique: they vary in duration, destination, academic program and overall experience. While outbound travel is a common element, we also offer virtual options and host inbound visitors or groups to help globalize classrooms across campus. There is something for everyone!
