Why Participate in a Short Term 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.
“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!”
EligibilityView details Hide details

To be eligible for a short term exchange abroad, students must:
- Complete all 5000-level required courses prior to departure and a minimum of 24 credits at Schulich. Students with advanced standing should consult the MBA Program Handbook for eligibility requirements.
- Attain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of at least 5 (B) on those 24 credits.

Access More InformationView details Hide details
Students wishing to apply for a short exchange term abroad, should attend an Exchange Information Webinar Session. Please refer to the Grad Blog in late September for upcoming dates and times.
Application ProcessView details Hide details
Complete the online application form and upload the following documents with your application*:
- Your answer to the Graduate Exchange Application Question
- A Proposed Study Plan form for each school listed on your application listing the courses you wish to take on exchange
- An up-to-date resume (many schools will require this)
*Please note: paper applications will not be accepted.
The application deadline for each school varies. Please refer to the application deadline noted next to the school information in the table.
All eligible candidates will meet with the Exchange Selection Committee for a 20-minute interview.
Students are matched to a partner school based on their response to the application question and their interview. The Exchange Selection Committee is looking for the student’s rationale for the school, in combination with their professionalism and ability to be an ambassador for Schulich.
The selections will be announced shortly after.
Next StepsView details Hide details
Students will be sent an email informing them as to the school they have been matched. They will be given approximately two weeks to confirm their acceptance of the offer.
Partner School Nominations
Once confirmed, the Graduate International Program Coordinator will nominate student(s) to the partner school at which time, the exchange school will contact the student to begin setting up the exchange. The student will be required to submit the requested documentation to the exchange school.
Pre-Departure PreparationView details Hide details
Prior to Departure
Please complete the following steps:
- Attend a mandatory Pre-Departure Session (dates will be emailed to you).
- 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.
- 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).
- Obtain comprehensive travel health insurance.
- 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.
- 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
- Register in the appropriate number of EXCH 6900-level courses through Passport York and ensure your Schulich tuition is paid for the term.
- Submit the online Emergency Contact Form, Risk & Responsibility Waiver Form and Schulich Travel Registry
- Register with Foreign Affairs in your home country. Canadians travelling abroad can register here
It is recommended that students check-in with the International Program Coordinator prior to their departure.
While AbroadView details Hide details
Confirm your Final Study Plan with the International Program Coordinator within two weeks of the start of classes:
- Send an email confirming that this study plan has not changed or
- Update the study plan with the changes and email it with the course descriptions to the Graduate International Program Coordinator or email@example.com.
- 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 ExchangeView details Hide details
Students are required to submit an Exchange Report & Testimonial.
Exchange grades (recorded as a pass or fail on the Schulich/York transcript) will be posted once the following are received:
