The Summer Abroad program in Spain starts on July 1st! This year, we are offering Spanish language and Fine Art History. Though Seville is known for its orange trees, it also has some famous mushrooms. Pictured here is the famous Metropol Parasol, also nicknamed “Las Setas” (literally, the mushrooms) because of its structure. Its design was inspired by the Seville Cathedral and the ficus trees of a neighbouring square. Cool, eh? Orange you glad to be going there? #uoft #uoftabroad #summer #summerabroad #spain #seville 📷 by 2017 Summer Abroad student Veronica Salamun
We are only 97 days away from July and we are pretty excited. We kick off with Spain and Portugal on the 1st, followed by Germany, Ireland, and Italy in late July. It may be a little early to pack, but you can attend the PDO (and stare at the calendar…) in the meantime! #countdown #summerabroad #uoftabroad #uoft #summer #studyabroad #portugal #spain #germany #ireland #italy
The first week of PDOs is done 💪 Ecuador, Beijing, Grenada, and Hong Kong are coming next. Are you ready to get pre-departure oriented? Get all that safety abroad info? Meet some peeps? Get free stuff?✌️🌎 #summerabroad #uoftabroad #uoft #orientation #safety #abroad #travelabroad Pictured: Prof. Joe Wong and the Shanghai & Beijing class
Did you know that French cuisine was awarded UNESCO World Heritage status in 2010? And that there are over 1000 varieties of cheese in France? Oh là là! Are the France Summer Abroad students the luckiest, or are they the luckiest? #uoftabroad #uoft #summerabroad #summer #wanderlust #France #Cheese #Food 📷credit: 2017 France Summer Abroad student Huang Xi
Next: Pre-Departure Orientations! As we gear up for take-off, we are hosting PDOs for each of our programs. Not only does each student get a sweet goody bag with info booklets, luggage tags, a first-aid kit, AND Purell (I mean talk about luxury), but they also get to meet the on-site staff, fellow classmates, and discuss what to expect from the trip. Don’t forget to check the time and location of your program’s PDO 😉 see you there! 🌏 #uoftabroad #summerabroad #summer #uoft #orientation
Our students are heading over to Australia in June to study environmental diversity and conservation! You probably know that Australia is famous for its unmatchable number of deadly animals, but did you know that Australia has a larger population of camels than Egypt? And that there are three times as many sheep as people? How’s that for diversity? #countingsheep #australia #uoft #uoftabroad #summerabroad
The countdown is on for Hong Kong! It turns out that Hong Kong has the highest IQ average (107), the largest number of skyscrapers in the world (double than New York), and the Hong Kong SAR is made up of 263 islands. All of that is great and all, but most enviable for those of us taking the TTC every day is that their subway system has a 99.9% on-time rate. Can you imagine such a thing? Our students will verify and report back in June! #uoftabroad #summerabroad #summer #travel #travelabroad #hongkong #asia
We are just 67 days away from our first June departure to Beijing! Then we are off to Australia, France, Greece, Hong Kong, and South Korea 😎✌️📷 What are you most looking forward to?  #uoftabroad #summerabroad #travel #travelabroad #summer #uoft #wanderlust #studyabroad #australia #greece #hongkong #southkorea #beijing
The countdown for Central Europe has begun! Our students will be exploring Czechia, Poland, Austria, and Hungary this year. Here’s a fun fact for our History students: Charles IV laid the first stone for the Charles Bridge in Prague at 5:31 am on July 9, 1357. If you write down this date and time as numbers, they form an increasing and decreasing  scale: 1-3-5-7-9-7-5-3-1. Needless to say, Charles IV was a (huge) nerd (and we love it!)

Summer Abroad students are flying to Ecuador on May 19! They'll be studying environmental diversity and conservation, so Ecuador is the perfect destination: not only does it have 9.2 species per square km (more than any other country on earth), but also tropical rainforests, volcanoes, beaches, the Andes mountains, AND the Galapagos islands (go Ecuador!). The Galapagos are also home to the blue-footed boobies, which not only have the best name, but the most adorable mating dance (and yes, you should go Google it right now) #bluefootedboobies #dance #uoft #uoftabroad #summerabroad #summer #travel #environment #nature #naturelovers #birds #andes #mountains #photography  These photos were taken in 2016 by one of our students 📷 credit Christopher Reid 💪
