Incoming Exchange

For an update on the Incoming Exchange Program and the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), please visit the Incoming Exchange Program webpage and the International Student Services Office (ISSO)’s COVID-19 FAQ webpage.

To attend Carleton University as an exchange student, your university must have an exchange agreement with Carleton and you must be nominated for exchange by the international office at your home institution. Exchange students study at Carleton for a single semester or for a full academic year while paying tuition to their home institution.

If you have questions about the Incoming Student Exchange Program, please contact us at exchange@carleton.ca.

Incoming Study Abroad at Carleton

If your university is not on our partner institutions list, fill out the Study Abroad Student Application to attend Carleton for a semester or year. Study Abroad students are required to pay international student fees to Carleton University.

The Carleton Campus

Our students tell us that one of the things they like most about Carleton is the University’s friendly, caring atmosphere. You will find that our teaching and support staff is accessible and genuinely interested in helping you succeed.

Carleton is clean and safe. Our beautiful 62-hectare campus is just 15 minutes from the centre of the city. An extensive tunnel system links all buildings on campus, making Carleton one of the most accessible universities in the country. Just minutes away from campus are a host of unique research and study resources including the National Archives, the National Research Council, the National Arts Centre, the National Gallery, the Museum of Civilization and the Museum of Science and Technology are but a few examples.

Our students come from every province and territory in Canada and from over 147 countries around the world. Why do they choose Carleton? Our worldwide reputation for quality programs is usually an important factor in their decision.

If it is already confirmed that you will be attending Carleton University, please visit the Incoming Students page to see a checklist of what you should do before you arrive, and the Current International and Exchange students page to read about ISSO student services.
