Outgoing students pay fees to Dalhousie University, but study at a partner institution. Exchange involves a one-for-one bilateral agreement between universities, where the partner sends one student for every one Dal sends on exchange.

There are 2 types of exchange programs:

University-wide programs


Administered through the International Centre. Open to students from most departments at Dalhousie. Check out the university-wide programs on offer.

Departmental programs


Administered by a specific academic unit at Dalhousie University. Contact the department directly to discuss application requirements. Check out some of the departmental programs on offer.

Study Abroad & Exchange 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.
