APPLICATION PROCESS There is a unique application process for ALL the OUPFB courses (including BI 367). (Attention: you cannot apply online!)


  1) Download and fill out the OUPFB application form

  2) Apply for the course at the Laurier Biology Office (Room BA 401)

  3) In addition to the regular (0.5-credit) tuition fees, you will be required to pay a deposit of $350 to WLU at the time of application, and later, the balance of the course fee to the host university prior to departure. Attach a cheque made out to Wilfrid Laurier University to your application.  

Descriptions of the 2017 field modules including costs and prerequisites, as well as additional information are available at the OUPFB website.

Enrollment in each course is limited. Each university receives only a small number of guaranteed spots in certain courses. However, after the first round of applications, available spots remain usually and can be filled by students from any university. This is why it is important to have several course options in your application. Modules may be cancelled if there are too few early applications.

The $350 deposit will be refunded if you do not manage to get into the course you applied for. However, students who drop a field course should not expect a refund of any field course-related costs.
