Course conversion: 6 ECTS credits = 1 UCalgary half-course equivalent.

Students can take two senior commerce and/or non-commerce options, and/or a maximum of 2 concentration courses (not ACCT/PLMA). They are required to maintain full time status while on exchange, so they must take the equivalent of at least 3 half courses (18 ECTS) and up to 5 half courses (30 ECTS).
Bocconi Summer School:
This 3-week summer program runs in late June/July and offers courses in Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management, Digital Marketing, Equity and Venture Capital Financing, Fashion and Design Management, International Business Strategy and more.

Exchange students pay their tuition and academic fees to the University of Calgary. Other expenses are paid directly to the service provider.
Did you know that you can take your UCalgary funding with you on exchange?
Since you remain a degree seeking student at UCalgary while on exchange you remain eligible for any awards and scholarships you are eligible to receive from the university as well as student loans.
UC International administers the International Study Travel Grant for students travelling on approved UCalgary study programs that are credit bearing. The amount changes year to year as the money is split evenly between qualified applicants. Students may only receive the study travel grant once. Please see the funding page for more information.
Haskayne students at UCalgary can ONLY apply for this partner through Haskayne, and must meet the Haskayne requirements for exchange.
A selection of courses is available in English; no knowledge of Italian is required to participate on this exchange program. A language proficiency test may be required in order to take courses taught in Italian.
Please note: Italian visa applications may require travel to the Edmonton or Vancouver consulates to finalize your study permit and take biometrics as needed, in advance of your departure. Please check with the embassy or consulate, or the government website regarding study visa/permit requirements as soon as possible to verify if this will be required for you.

International travel presents challenges that may not be found when attending classes on campus. There may be a lack of resources, emergency services, hospitals, accessibility issues and/or demands on the physical and the mental self, all of which can challenge individuals when away from their usual support systems and structures. Adequate preparation is essential.
For this reason, it is imperative that you evaluate all aspects of your own physical, psychological, emotional and spiritual condition against the rigors of the particular study abroad program you are selecting. If you are unsure of whether or not this program is a good fit for you and/or if you have any circumstances that could impede your enjoyment of the program, please contact us. Our Study Abroad Team will be happy to assist in finding the best options for you and arrange any supports or accommodations necessary to ensure your success.
Please note if you have or are seeking a certificate from Student Accessibility Services, you should provide this early to your Study Abroad Advisor to ensure that the option that you are seeking can support your needs.
