Picture of Caitlyn Bertone in Paris, FranceWhy Participate in a Part-Time Exchange?

Students who are not able to spend a full term abroad can still receive many of the same benefits as a full term exchange but in a shorter amount of time such as experiencing a new culture, taking courses with a unique focus and expanding their global network.

Depending on the partner school, students will spend anywhere between two weeks to two months on exchange and register in the equivalent of 3-6 Schulich credits.

 
Elizabeth Owens Skidmore, MBA

“I loved this program, CBS, Copenhagen, and Denmark as a whole an extraordinary amount. The six weeks I spent at CBS were transformational for me. The friends I made, the people I met in class, the professors I had, and the glorious Danish sunshine we experienced made for a summer I will never forget. I would highly recommend this program to anyone and hope that you will have as great of a time as I did!”

Elizabeth Owens Skidmore, MBA

Pre-Departure Preparation

View details Hide details

Prior to Departure

Please complete the following steps:

  1. Attend a mandatory Pre-Departure Session (dates will be emailed to you).
  2. Apply for required travel documents:
    • It is your responsibility to research and apply for the correct travel document/visa to enter your destination country as an exchange student. Your host school will likely have additional information on what is required. Do NOT delay in applying for your visa, as processing times may be lengthy. If you are not able to obtain your visa in time, you may need to withdraw from in-person exchange.
  3. Make travel arrangements:
    • It is your responsibility to fully understand the requirements to enter your host country and to make appropriate travel arrangements. We strongly encourage students to also purchase trip cancellation insurance, in case you are unable to travel (due to visa delays, unexpected border closures, etc).
  4. Obtain comprehensive travel health insurance.
  5. Submit an Enrolment Status Change Form prior to registering for the exchange term if changing your status to/from full-time or part-time enrolment.
  6. Email the following information to the International Program Coordinator for approval prior to departure:
    • A copy of the Final Study Plan Form (as a Word Document)
    • One copy of each courses’ syllabus/outline
    • Course offering information provided by the school
  7. Register in the appropriate number of EXCH 6900-level courses through Passport York and ensure your Schulich tuition is paid for the term.
  8. Submit the online Emergency Contact Form, Risk & Responsibility Waiver Form and Schulich Travel Registry
  9. Register with Foreign Affairs in your home country. Canadians travelling abroad can register here
  10. Review Pre-Departure slides: Travel Essentials and Academics

It is recommended that students check-in with the International Program Coordinator prior to their departure.

While Abroad

View details Hide details

Confirm your Final Study Plan with the International Program Coordinator within two weeks of the start of classes:

  1. Send an email confirming that this study plan has not changed or
  2. Update the study plan with the changes and email it with the course descriptions to the Graduate International Program Coordinator or  exchange@schulich.yorku.ca.
  3. Update your EXCH course enrolment through Passport York if your credits on exchange have changed.

If course code enrollment listed on your study plan form and York enrollment do not match:

  • You can risk not getting credit for the courses you completed on exchange if you have not registered in the corresponding number of credits on Passport York
  • If you register in too many exchange credits on Passport York and not enough on exchange, you may receive F grades for not fulfilling the credits on Passport York.

Work on your exchange report and testimonial throughout your exchange so that you have the information and photos that you need to submit at the end of the exchange (refer to the Post Exchange section).

Post Exchange
