Since 1863, Huron University College has challenged students to be Leaders with Heart. As the founding college of Western University, Huron has remained strategically small to best serve the needs of its students. Our affiliation with Western’s main campus means students can access a broad range of clubs and activities, while benefiting from Huron’s strong professor-to-student ratio.
The personalized learning experiences we deliver ensure students' individual gifts are nurtured. More than ever, Huron is focused on fostering students' character as much as their academic achievement. By prioritizing community engagement, research and scholarship opportunities, Huron prepares students to be engaged citizens who transform the sectors they work within.
Each year Huron welcomes students from all over the world. If you would like to be considered for a exchange, your home institution must nominate you to become an exchange student at Huron. Please check your school’s website or student services area for information on how to get the process of visiting Huron underway.
Huron provides international students with the opportunity to move into residence one week prior to the arrival of all first year students. During this week, we have planned activities to help you adjust to life in London, Ontario and the academic environment of a Canadian university. This time is also used to get some of the day-to-day tasks out of the way (health insurance, shopping for the things you need, learning the bus routes, etc.).
Dates: August 28th - September 2nd 2018
Cost: $350 - includes transportation from Toronto International Airport on August 28, all meals, activities, and room fees for 6 days

NEW ENTRY REQUIREMENTS FOR…
Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) for temporary residents (Visitors, Students, Workers)
New entry requirement now in effect: visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to or transit through Canada need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). Exceptions include U.S. citizens and travellers with a valid Canadian visa. Canadian citizens, including dual citizens, and Canadian permanent residents cannot apply for an eTA.
Go to the Government of Canada's official website to apply for an eTA. It only costs $7 CAD. Most eTA applications are approved within minutes of applying.
Note: The leniency period that allows travellers to board their flight without an eTA ends November 9, 2016.

Visa-Exemption for Mexican nationals
If you are citizen of Mexico, as of December 1, 2016, you will no longer require a temporary resident visa (TRV) to travel to and enter Canada. Instead, you will require an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). See above for further details. If you wish to study or work in Canada, you will still need to qualify and apply for a proper permit.

Dual Canadian citizens need a valid Canadian passport
If you are a dual Canadian citizen used to travelling to or transiting through Canada by air with a non-Canadian passport, you will no longer be able to do so as of November 10, 2016. You will need a valid Canadian passport to board your flight.
If your country needs you to enter and exit that country using a passport issued by its government, you will still need a valid Canadian passport to board your flight to Canada. Make sure to carry both passports when you travel.
Exception: If you are an American-Canadian dual citizen with a valid U.S. passport, you don’t need a Canadian passport to fly to Canada. However, you will still need to carry proper identification and meet the basic requirements to enter Canada.
