Variety of courses offered in English.

Course requirements: Haskayne BComm students must take their common core courses at the University of Calgary. On exchange 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).

Ensure you review your course selection with a Haskayne exchange advisor at least 2 months before leaving for your exchange to confirm transfer credit.

Please consult the host university's website to create a tentative list of 60 ECTS credits per semester that you are interested in taking. This list may be based on the current or previous year's courses. Course selection is done through their online portal, Campus Virtuel, after acceptance into the exchange program.

Course conversion: 6 ECTS = 3 UCalgary units (1 half-course equivalent).

Fall semester: September to December

Winter (Spring) Semester: January to April

  1. Costs

    Exchange students pay their tuition and academic fees to the University of Calgary. Haskayne students on Haskayne exchanges are charged Haskayne tuition. Other expenses are paid directly to the service provider. Also, remember to include things like visas, insurance, vaccinations etc in your budget planning. 

    Students are sometimes also expected to pay fees to their host institution. This information is given to exchange students by the host institution, after they have applied and been accepted for an exchange.

  2. Funding

    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.

    Please see our website for more information about funding for Haskayne students on Haskayne exchanges.

    Also, don't forget to include things like visas, insurance, vaccinations etc in your budget planning. All students on exchange in France will have to pay roughly €215 for French social security on arrival, which covers some costs of medical care, but comprehensive travel medical coverage will still be required.

    Students considering significant rail travel in France may want to purchase a Carte Jeune via French National Rail (SNCF), which allows for reduced travel for every journey over a year. 

    France - Housing Aid
    All students in France who rent housing with a contract, regardless of national origin, are eligible for a National Housing Aid from the ‘CAF’, Caisse d’Allocations Familiales. For the subsidy application, please make sure to bring a copy of your birth certificate.

Please Note: French visa applications for Canadians may require travel to the Vancouver consulate to submit the documentation and take biometrics as needed within 3 months before departure to France, so students may not have access to their passports during that time.

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.
