How to Apply

Tips for completing your exchange application

 Undergraduate Students 

Undergraduate students will need to be assigned to a “Home Faculty” at UAlberta, so:

  • The majority of courses that you list on your Undergraduate Application for Exchange form should be selected from only one UAlberta Faculty.
  • The first course that you list should be in the Faculty where you intend to take most of your courses

Graduate Students 

  • Graduate students will need to be assigned to a "Home Department" at UAlberta, so:
    • The majority of courses that you list in your application documents should be selected from one department only.
    • The courses listed on your “Application for Visiting Graduate Student” form and “Permission to Participate Form” must be the same and be listed in the same order
    • The first course listed on your “Application for Visiting Graduate Student” form and “Permission to Participate Form” must be a course from the department where you intend to take the majority of your courses.
  • Graduate students wishing to conduct research while on exchange must:
    • find a host supervisor at UAlberta before submitting an exchange application.
    • indicate that they wish to enroll in "RSCH 900" on their “Application for Visiting Graduate Student” forms and “Permission to Participate Forms,” along with writing the names of their University of Alberta host supervisors. 

Students who wish to take business courses:

  • It may be possible to take courses in both the Alberta School of Business and a different Faculty, however, this applies only if you are enrolled in a program at your home institution that incorporates both business and a different subject area. If this is the case, please indicate this:
  • for undergraduate students, under the course selection charts on page three of the “Undergraduate Application for Exchange” form 
  • for graduate students, in the area entitled, “Proposed Program of Study” on the “Permission to Participate” form
