Exchange Programs

Incoming Exchange Application Guide

Before you Apply

If you are interested in coming to the University of Alberta on an exchange program, your first step will be to contact your home institution’s International or Study Abroad Office; who will be able to inform you whether your home institution has a formal exchange agreement with UAlberta.

If such an agreement exists, you must be officially nominated by your home institution, in order to participate in an exchange program at UAlberta.

Admission requirements and application procedures vary according to the particular exchange agreement. Exchange students normally pay tuition fees at their home institution, even while studying at UAlberta.
