We have significant experience working with sponsor agencies, having welcomed students funded by more than 30 sponsoring agencies worldwide. We are here to ensure that sponsored students’ studies at the University of Ottawa are successful.
Sponsored Students Program
Who are sponsored students?
The Sponsored Student Program does not provide funding to students. Our office provides support to students who have either already obtained or will be seeking third-party sponsorship funding to attend uOttawa.
Students wishing to study at uOttawa must follow the normal admission process for international students. The application for sponsorship is done separately. Each sponsor has its own application process. Please contact the Sponsored Students Program if there are questions on the distinction between sponsorship and admission application processes.
Some students may be required to take language courses if their offers of admission are conditioned by completion of those courses. The offers an and a that will help students achieve the required level of language proficiency to begin their program of study.
When students have their fees paid by their government or organization outside the University of Ottawa, they should notify the university at least one month before classes start. Sponsors must fill out the billing authorization form or provide a sponsorship letter so that the University of Ottawa can bill them directly for the appropriate fees. This will allow the University to properly bill the sponsor directly and avoid delays.
