|Carleton University offers an Exchange Program with approximately 175 partner institutions in more than 35 countries around the globe. The Exchange Program allows Carleton University students (undergraduate and graduate) to study full time at a partner institution for a single semester (fall or winter) or for a full academic year. Exchange students pay tuition to Carleton University and earn credit towards their Carleton degree.
Check out our Stories from Exchange to learn more about other students’ experiences while abroad.
Students can check the eligibility requirements to apply for exchange on the Outgoing Exchange website. The Outgoing International Exchange Application is on Carleton Central under Student Online Applications.
Scholarships and Bursaries:
The Awards Office page lists a number of internal and external scholarships/bursaries available to exchange students. There is the CU Exchange Bursary which is administered by the Awards Office and is valued at $500 – $2,500 and awarded to eligible undergraduate students. As for the Bachelor of Global and International Studies (BGInS) students, they can apply for the BGInS IER Bursary for financial assistance towards their exchange experience.
Students participating in an International Exchange will receive full credit equivalency towards their degree. Students who successfully complete the equivalent of 2.0 – 3.5 credits within one term of exchange will receive a “Study Term Abroad” notification on their transcript and diploma. Students who complete the equivalent of 4.0 credit within a year of exchange will receive a “Study Year Abroad” on their transcript and diploma.
There is a non-refundable application fee of $80.00 CDN (except for BIB students). Students participating in the Exchange Program pay their standard full time tuition fee to their home institution (Carleton University). However, there are many other expenses that should be considered and budgeted for when preparing for exchange such as accommodation, travel, and living expenses.
