Incoming Exchange Student Application Guide


Join us as an exchange student at UAlberta, one of the world's top 100 universities!

UAlberta is currently home to 7,000+ international students from 125 countries, including exchange students from all over the world.

Exchange agreements allow international students to take courses at UAlberta for a term or year while paying tuition at their home institution, with the potential to transfer course credit back to their home institutions.

Would you like a taste of UAlberta even before you get here?  Check out one of our "Virtual Campus Experiences" that can help you get a sense of what to expect from our Student Life and Events, Research and Learning, Study Spaces, Sports and Recreation, and Residence.
