Exchange program


November 15-19th is International Education Week! To view all the virtual and in-person events happening, check out UVic's Global Days. For information specific to the ICS Exchange Program, check out our schedule of events

The International Centre for Students Exchange Program allows you to study at one of our 70+ partner universities around the world while gaining UVic credits and paying UVic tuition fees!

ICS coordinates incoming and outgoing exchange for undergraduate students in the Faculties of Humanities, Science and Social Sciences.

Students in the Faculties of Education, Engineering, Fine Arts, Human and Social Development, Law, Business and Graduate Studies work with their Academic Unit Adviser to plan an international exchange.

 I was able to learn and do new things absolutely everyday.

Why go on exchange?

  • Immerse yourself in a new culture
  • Make new friends and travel to interesting places
  • Develop your skills in a second (or third!) language
  • Experience independence and tackle new challenges
  • Gain international perspectives in your field of study

Start your journey

It’s a bit nerve wracking, but put yourself out there because there are so many opportunities and you don’t want to miss out.
