Odyssey and Explore
Odyssey – Work across Canada
We all long for adventure at some point in our lives, but what would it be like if that longing came true? Odyssey is a unique program that allows students to work in an elementary, secondary, or postsecondary school and discover a new part of Canada at the same time! This paid work opportunity gives all students of the University of Ottawa the chance to travel to a new province, and share their knowledge of the English language and culture through games, activities, and workshops. Odyssey is a bilingual, professional, paid work experience, and it could be yours! Visit the Odyssey website for more information.
Explore – Learn across Canada
Odyssey is not quite for you? The Explore French Immersion Bursary program is also offered, a five-week language learning course during the spring or summer where the majority of expenses are covered. With other students of the University of Ottawa at all skill levels in the French language, participants will have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to improve their French, see a different part of Canada, and make friends from across the country! Visit the Explore website for more information.
