Outbound Exchanges As a Mount Royal University student, you can spend one or two semesters on exchange, studying at one of our partner institutions. International Education at Mount Royal University also offers short term (2 - 4 week) summer exchanges. This is a great option if you are looking for an independent experience that combines academics with ample opportunity for additional travel.

How to start the process to go on exchange: Attend a Study Abroad information session!

This is the best way to get started with your exchange. Get an overview of the whole process and all of the information that you need to get started in a 45 minute info session. This is also a great opportunity to ask any questions you may have. International Education hosts an info session at a different time each week so you will be able to find a session that fits your schedule. You can see the full schedule here.

Attending an info session is required to apply to go on exchange. Visit the International Education Website for additional information on outbound exchanges. Field SchoolDive into this academically robust opportunity as you travel with a group of Mount Royal University faculty and students to combine experiential learning and coursework to integrate your learning with your international destinations.
