TAB Timeline

Teaching Across Borders (TAB) takes place during your final Fall semester. The application process begins the year before:

  • After-Degree students apply in their 1st Fall semester, when they are taking their EDUC 400s
  • Concurrent students apply in their 4th Fall semester, when they are taking their EDUC 400s
  • Four-Year B.Ed. students apply in their 3rd Fall semester
  • Community-Based students apply based on which program pathway they are in (see above)

Check the schedules below to see which dates/sessions apply to you, depending on which year you'll be travelling for TAB.

Due to travel restrictions related to COVID-19, the plans for Fall 2021 TAB are unable to proceed. Please look to this page for further updates on alternative TAB opportunities in Fall 2021.
