Student Exchanges

Length of Stay


When you take part in a student exchange at Université Laval you automatically obtain the status of visiting student. This allows you to complete a maximum of two semesters at a given level of study (i.e., undergraduate, master’s, or doctorate).

To maintain your status, you must be registered full-time—i.e., for a minimum of 12 credits (180 hours of class and 360 hours of personal work)—during each semester.

It is possible to extend your stay once in Québec.  Please visit the following link
