Application Guidelines for International Academic Exchange
Exchange Programs offer you the opportunity to study at a host institution that has an exchange agreement with King’s University College. These are short-term programs that allow you to go on exchange for a summer course, for one term/semester, or for an academic year. In return, students from the host institution may study at your home institution. During your exchange period you remain registered at King’s and your course credits may be transferred to your degree at King’s.
All full-time and part-time students are invited to consider exchange. Part-time students will need to register as full-time students, and pay full-time tuition to King’s while on exchange. Students who are selected will have a cumulative average of 70% or above and will be in good academic standing prior to their selection for the exchange program. Students will be evaluated on the basis of their application form and transcript. To receive course credit for your courses studied while on exchange, you must ensure that the courses are compatible with your degree requirements at King’s University College. Please meet with an academic counselor at the Academic Dean’s Office at King’s to determine how exchange courses will transfer back to your King’s program of study. Please visit the ADO website for information on how to get in touch with an academic counsellor.
