Take your studies abroad
Studying abroad for one or two terms is a great way to get a different perspective on your studies in computer science, make valuable connections, and gain the kind of experience that prospective employers look for. By carefully matching the courses you take with your Dalhousie degree requirements, you can graduate on time with the competitive edge that an international experience delivers.
In addition to the many university-wide exchange programs that are open to FCS students, we offer several programs in the UK, Hong Kong, Germany, Korea and France specifically for computer science students.
Faculty of Computer Science Exchange Programs
Faculty of Computer Science Exchange Scholarships
FCS provides several scholarships of $1000 each for students who participate in FCS exchange programs. These scholarships are merit based, and can be held in addition to any other awards. No application is required for FCS Exchange Scholarships. They will be awarded based on the information in exchange applications.
External funding opportunities
The International Centre maintains a list of funding opportunities that an outgoing exchange student may be eligible for. Please contact the International Centre if you need assistance.
"This exchange has been such a positive experience, from the new things I've learned in school to some of the people that I've met. There are a lot of computer science events held by large corporations that invite students from UK schools. I went to one that dealt with women in technology. It was an amazing networking experience." - Viki Bojilova, a Dalhousie BCS student, did an exchange at the University of Brighton.
