All uOttawa faculties and departments are open to exchange students except the Faculty of Medicine, the Faculty of Education and the Telfer School of Management.
Exchange students can register for English as a second language (ESL) and French as a second language (FLS) courses at no extra cost. It is possible to take both ESL and FLS courses. Students must clearly indicate that they wish to take an ESL / FLS course on the Course Registration Form (included in the acceptance package).
Results obtained in an online language placement test determine the appropriate language course level.
All students wishing to participate in an exchange for the Fall term (September to December), the Winter term (January to April) or the academic year (September to April) must submit their completed application package by March 31.

The University of Ottawa has a limited number of rooms available in university residences for exchange students. However, exchange students are not guaranteed on-campus residence. Students can join the uOttawa Bureau International Office Facebook group to view postings from fellow students. They can also learn more about off-campus housing.
Students living with a disability, for example, those who use a wheelchair or who have a visual impairment can be accommodated in our 90 University residence complex. For a complete list of services for students with disabilities, see the Access Service.
Subscription to the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) is compulsory for all international incoming exchange students (Canadian exchange students are exempted).
See a breakdown of the estimated cost of living in Canada.
If you have any questions, email our incoming exchanges team, or visit the International Office website.
