Students applying for this exchange who are not Canadian citizens have other funding options open to them.

Why don't you combine your participation in this exchange with participation in an internship as well?  We could send you on  a TusStar Internship or an IWE internship in Hong Kong before or after your exchange.  If you are interested in going out on two programs please contact Michal Guzowski at michal.guzowski@ualberta.ca for more details.

Fudan University Course Information

*Fudan also offers the possibility of off-campus, unpaid internships for Canadian citizens as part of the exchange experience (some of these internships *might* offer in-kind support - like meals, for example - instead of payment).  If interested in making an internship part of your exchange experience at Fudan University please contact Michal Guzowski at michal.guzowski@ualberta.ca. 


Fudan University Accommodation
