FIND OUT IF YOU ARE ELIGIBLE
Applicants must be nominated by one of StFX's exchange university partners. Interested students are encouraged to find out as much as possible about the academic and social experience students have while studying at StFX. Also, they should research the study options and ask for advice through the International Exchange Office of their home university.
Summary information about studying at StFX can be found in the Exchange Student Guide 2019-2020 for international students (also available at the Forms and Guides page on this site).
SUBMIT AN APPLICATION
The application consists of:
- Nomination email from the home university International Exchange Office.
- A completed International Exchange Application form.
- A PDF copy of the most recent certified university transcript.
- A completed Confirmation of Language Skills form.
All exchange applications should be emailed directly to the Education Abroad Advisor, Ashley Sheppard, at firstname.lastname@example.org by the deadline.
For study dates beginning beginning in September, STFX must receive nominations of incoming students by May 1 with student applications received by May 15.
For study in January, nominations need to be submitted by October 1st and student applications must be received by October 15th.
Students wishing to reserve a room on campus should indicate this at the bottom of their application form. The student will then be contacted about whether there is residence space on campus. The earlier StFX receives a residence accommodation request, the more likely a student will be assigned their first choice of type of accommodation.
Once an application has been approved by the StFX Admissions Office, the student will receive a letter of acceptance accompanied by a ‘visa’ form. The ‘visa’ form is needed to apply for a Residence Visa or Study Permit (if required). The acceptance letter is emailed to the email address provided by the student on the application form. Students should be sure to print clearly their information in order to prevent any delays in receiving their acceptance letter.
