Study Abroad Video Contest

Every year Concordia International hosts its annual Study Abroad Video Contest! Show the Concordia community what it’s like to study abroad, the connections you have made and your reflections on your host country, culture, and community. The video contest is open to all Concordia students embarking on or currently on exchange abroad.

Contest rules

All video submissions must include
