Why should I go on an international exchange?

The reasons to go on an international exchange are many, including satisfying your desire for adventure, experiencing another culture and learning self-reliance. We often hear from our students that their international exchange taught them about themselves and broadened their perspectives. Don't take our word for it — go on an international exchange and find out for yourself.


What's involved and how can I go?

The International Centre offers full-semester and summer exchanges at more than 46 partner universities throughout the world.

Eligibility requirements

To qualify for an undergraduate exchange you must be:

  • a full-time University of Lethbridge student;
  • in at least the second year of your program at the time of the exchange;
  • in good academic standing, with preference given to those with a 2.5 GPA or higher; and
  • responsible for all expenses associated with the exchange, including but not limited to University of Lethbridge tuition, the exchange application fee, travel expenses, health care and living expenses.

Note: Certain students are subject to a residency requirement which may affect their ability to study abroad in their final year. Please contact your academic advisor for more information.
