How much:

There is no fee for participation. Students will pay their regular tuition to Fanshawe while studying in Finland or Ireland. 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. A learning plan must be approved by the department chair prior to the student's departure and course equivalencies reported to the Registrar's Office.
