Student Exchange Program

Student Exchange

The University of Toronto has more than 130 partner university institutions in 40 different countries spanning 6 continents around the world. Each year, partner universities agree to accept a limited number of U of T students into their programs.  In exchange, U of T accepts students from our partner universities. Exchange programs provide second or third year students with excellent opportunities to experience new cultures and learn new languages while earning credits towards their U of T degrees.

As an outbound Exchange Student you may:

  1. Remain a U of T student, and pay U of T tuition fees
  2. Go on exchange for one semester or for a full academic year
  3. Participate in a Summer research program
  4. Choose your own accommodation or live on-campus residence
  5. Apply for financial aid if you are eligible for Ontario Student Assistance Program (OSAP)
  6. Earn transfer credits towards your U of T degree (for most courses):
