Field Schools


Think about participating on a TRU Field School...

A TRU field school is a TRU course for credit or non-credit offered in another country. Because field schools take place outside the traditional classroom, they are:

  • Low cost based on group travel rates
  • Great for first time travellers
  • Great for students wishing to join a short term trip
  • Great opportunity to visit a new country 

General information about TRU Field Schools

  • Led by a TRU faculty member
  • Vary between 2 to 6 weeks in length
  • For-credit schools can be applied to program or degree
  • Open to all TRU and Open Learing students
  • Open to students not attending TRU
  • Most operate during the months of April, May and June
  • Field Schools are supported by but not operated by the Study Abroad Centre
  • All students once approved by faculty qualify automatically for the International Mobility Award
