Pack your passport and plan a visit over the border to Montreal. Practice your French or speak English--Montreal is a bilingual city that's home to highly acclaimed universities including McGill, University of Quebec Montreal and Concordia. Slightly further afield are Canada's capital, Ottawa, where you may find yourself on a study trip exploring Canadian politics, and Quebec City, where you can explore a 400-year-old fortified city.
