Choose Field Schools for your next study abroad adventure
Field Schools are short-term study abroad programs with long-lasting memories. Taught and led by Camosun faculty, you will study and travel with a group of students for up to six weeks. Field Schools change every academic year.

Any changes made to the original travel arrangements will be made at the student's personal expense.
All outgoing study abroad students must complete the Pre-Departure Orientation.
