As part of Fanshawe's internationalization strategy and supported by scholarships from the Ontario Ministry of Colleges, Training and Universities.  

Students who study abroad on exchange develop skills which carry forward into their studies and their careers. This skill development begins even before you go abroad, during the application process! Follow these three simple steps to learn more about exchanges and to complete the outbound exchange application process: 

 

Jump to a school: 

Lawrence Kinlin School of Business 

School of Contemporary Media 

School of Design 

School of Information Technology 

School of Tourism, Hospitality, Tourism and Culinary Arts 

Do your research 

Is an exchange the best option for you in terms of academic fit, length, and your personal goals? Where are you interested in studying? When is the best time for you go? Do you want to go to a country where English is not the first language? Use the Fanshawe Go Abroad website, speak with your program coordinators and faculty or visit the International Centre in E2025 for help.  

Complete an Exchange Application with your academic division 

You will need to list your top three host school choices, explain why you want to study abroad in a statement of interest and submit your resume with your application. Your application needs to be approved by your academic division for you to qualify to go on exchange. You can request an application form from your academic division or the International Centre in E2025. 

  

Receive notice of acceptance via an email from the International Exchange Coordinator 

You will find out where you will be studying and be invited to meet the exchange coordinator for your pre-departure orientation and preparation meeting to review all of your next steps, deadlines and requirements. 

Application deadlines: 

Students must apply to study on exchange one semester in advance. For example, if you want to study on exchange in your level 3, you would apply in level 2. The exact application deadlines will vary slightly each year but you can anticipate the following:

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.
