Incoming Exchange Students

Welcome to the pages for incoming exchange students. We are excited that you are considering the University of Alberta as an exchange destination during your law studies.  Here you will find information relating to studying law as an exchange student at the University of Alberta.

The University of Alberta welcomes international exchange students each year. These students come to Edmonton within the framework of agreements with universities all over the world.

If your university is an exchange partner of the University of Alberta you can apply for a study abroad period at the International Office of your own university.

As an exchange student you do not have to pay a tuition fee at the University of Alberta, but you will continue to pay tuition to your home institution. You can choose from a wide selection of courses which are taught in English.
