Academic Considerations

You should discuss with an academic advisor in your faculty regarding the specifics for going abroad, as well as regarding choosing and taking academic courses.

Credit Transfer

Students may be eligible to receive academic transfer credit if the coursework they complete abroad fits into the program requirements of their UAlberta degree. Faculties will assess credit on a per-course basis with regard to factors such as:

  • the hours of instruction for a course
  • the length/duration of a course
  • the level of a course
  • the course content
  • credit-weight at the host institution

For more information about credit transfer to the Faculty of Native Studies, please contact Freda Cardinal, Student Advisor at
