Things to know before you apply

If you are not part of your institution’s exchange program, you can spend one or two semesters studying at UFV in Canada as a visiting student and earn credits towards your degree at your home institution. You can then resubmit your application to return to UFV for additional semesters.

If you are participating in your institution’s exchange program, you are not considered a UFV visiting student. You should apply to study at UFV as an inbound exchange student.
