Exchange and Study Abroad

Explore opportunities around the globe

At Dalhousie you can study theatre in Prague, French in Dijon, nursing in The Gambia, international development in Cuba, or computer science in Hong Kong. Those are just a few of the over 90 international exchange options to explore.

Studying abroad for a semester or a full year is a great chance to experience new cultures and learn new languages. Travelling can also bring you new perspectives on your studies and yourself while you create new connections across the world.

The International Centre will help you prepare for your departure, provide financial assistance if you are eligible, assist you in the event of an emergency and help you re-integrate into Canada upon your return.

Study Abroad Advisor


Gillian MacDonald

Study Abroad & Exchange Advisor 

Gillian's best piece of advice for exchange students? Take the leap! The world is a beautiful place to explore. 

Gillian grew up in Nova Scotia, but has travelled the globe and lived in many special places. It was leaving the province to go explore the world that has helped her to realize just how truly special Nova Scotia is and she is happy to be living in the area again after many years away from home. 

She has a passion for group facilitation and activities, meaningful and heartfelt discussions over coffee, and loves sharing all that the city of Halifax has to offer. Playing games, gardening, book club and movies, as well as drinking cappuccinos on Monday morning and baking the perfect cookie are some of the things that put a smile on her face.
