Exchange Opportunities!

As part of Fanshawe's internationalization strategy and supported by scholarships from the Ontario Ministry of Colleges, Training and Universities, Fanshawe's School of IT students have an opportunity to take a semester abroad in Europe. Scholarships are available!

Students registered in the School of IT are able to study for one semester in Finland or the Netherlands! To be eligible, students must be in good standing at the time of selection and meet the GPA requirement (minimum 3.0).


The School of IT has an exchange agreement with Jyvaskyla University of Applied Sciences (JAMK) in Jyvaskyla, Finland. and The Hague University of Applied Sciences in The Hague, Netherlands.

Who is eligible?

To be eligible, students must be in good standing at the time of selection and be intending to return to Fanshawe at the conclusion of the semester abroad. Students in level 4 of the Internet Applications and Web Development program, and students in level 5 of the Computer Programmer Analyst program are eligible to go on exchange.

How much?

There is no fee for participation. Students will pay their regular tuition to Fanshawe while studying abroad. They will pay no tuition fees to the host institution. Students will be assisted to locate suitable on-campus or off-campus accommodation by the host institution. Students will pay their own transportation, medical insurance, foreign residency permit and living expenses. They will remain registered at Fanshawe and therefore will be eligible to receive OSAP and other forms of financial assistance for which they qualify. A portion of the cost for flight, health insurance, and accommodation can be covered by the Fanshawe College International Exchange Opportunity scholarship, if the student is approved.

Academic Credit:

Students will receive Fanshawe credit for all approved courses successfully completed at the host institution. A learning plan must be approved by the Program Coordinator prior to the student's departure.
