Short-Term Intensives

Short-term Intensives

Short-Term International Experiences are immersive experiences that allow students to explore the creative industries in other parts of the world. 

Short-Term Experiences are often offered as part of a course credit but may also be co-curricular activities. They are a great way for students to learn about diverse approaches to creativity and innovation and learn key twenty-first-century skills of global leadership and creative impact.


Student Testimonials

"The Cortona short-term intensive program gave me the chance to travel and explore Italy while studying relevant material. Given the flexibility of the course load, I was able to travel beyond Italy to Germany, Austria, Finland and Estonia."

"The professors were extremely knowledgeable and took a hands-on approach to learning. Through the combination of lectures and field trips, I was able to comprehend key artists while witnessing their work in real life."


-Kristin Kelly, BA 2020

Student Testimonial

 "The Professional Communication program at Toronto Met University offered me interactive learning opportunities where I was able to explore theoretical education and hands-on classes. One of my most memorable experiences was participating in an immersive short term exchange program for six weeks in Cortona, Italy. What I took away from this experience are lifelong lessons that simply cannot be taught in a classroom. This program not only broadened my general knowledge but made me aware of alternative and multi-faceted approaches to learning with experiential field trips across Tuscany. Living among the locals and being constantly immersed in the Italian culture provided me with an array of different cultural and community perspectives. This program helped me create some long-lasting memories that I will never forget, such as grabbing a cappuccino at Caffè Signorelli after lunch or watching the sunset at Piazza Garibaldi."
