Exchange Students

Nipissing University welcomes incoming students on exchange from other countries to study at our beautiful campus. Current Nipissing students also have the opportunity to study abroad and experience learning in another country. Outgoing exchanges are typically open to students in the second or third year of their program. Students in their graduating year will be considered on an individual basis.

Incoming Students

As part of your acceptance package, you will receive a course pre-registration form and instructions on selecting courses.

The International Initiatives Office will provide the forms to the Academic Advising Office and they will register you in your courses.

For additional questions regarding courses, please contact

Outgoing Students

Nipissing University students that are interested in an exchange are encouraged to meet with Academic Advising sometime in their first year before submitting an exchange application.

Academic Advisors will outline:

  • academic considerations of the international exchange process;
  • how credits will be transferred; and
  • how to ensure that degree requirements are met while on an exchange.
