How to Apply

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:

All exchange applications should be emailed directly to the Education Abroad Advisor, Ashley Sheppard, at asheppar@stfx.ca by the deadline. 

APPLICATION DEADLINES

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.

ACCOMMODATIONS REQUESTS

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.

ACCEPTANCE LETTERS

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.
