The Study Abroad Experience:
Your host for a semester abroad will be Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT). The institute is located in Calgary, Canada, the largest city in the province of Alberta. During your semester at SAIT, you will experience a multicultural city with a diverse history. Calgary is a well-known destination for winter sports and ecotourism, with a number of major mountain resorts near the city and metropolitan area.

Our Partner: 
The Global Education Network offers its students the opportunity to study internationally at SAIT in Calgary. Students can gain a unique advantage: preparing for work in a global environment.  Students will be enrolled in formal classes at a host college, and (pending visa arrangements) may choose to work abroad to supplement your savings. You will receive credit for academic courses you complete on exchange, live the lifestyle of students in the host country, make new friends and have the opportunity to form lasting relationships.

Once you are selected for study abroad, Kirkwood and SAIT can assist you with finding housing on campus in the SAIT residence halls.
