Study abroad opportunities

University-wide exchanges

Some of your most life-changing experiences at university can take place in another country. Dalhousie Student Exchange Services (DSES) provides students with information about programs and plenty of inspiration to encourage students to study abroad.

All Dalhousie University students can take advantage of the following exchanges and study abroad opportunities:

  • Exchange opportunities: Dalhousie has university exchange partners around the world. We can also help to arrange an exchange with a university not on our list.
  • Study abroad programs: Spend a year at Oxford University, the Bader International Study Centre at Herstmonceux Castle, the Universities of Edinburgh or St. Andrew’s in Scotland, or the University of Dublin, Trinity College, in Ireland.

Departmental exchange opportunities

Marine Biology students, as part of Dalhousie’s Faculty of Science, can participate in an exchange program through the Canadian European Union Cooperation Program in Higher Education and Training, or the TransAtlantic Science Student Exchange Program (TASSEP). Participating schools are located in Denmark, Sweden, Austria, Germany, Scotland, Ireland, France, Italy, Switzerland, Greece, Belgium, and Spain. You could choose to do an exchange for one or two terms during your science program.
