Making a sustainable mark on the world


Types of Exchanges

International Profile


The international profile gives international students in selected programs at their home university the opportunity to spend one or two semesters in equivalent programs at Université Laval, under an agreement signed by program directors at both universities.


Advantages for students from partner institutions:

  • Partner institutions are responsible for selecting students to participate in exchanges at Université Laval. Once selected, students are generally admitted to UL without any other formalities.

  • Partner institutions ensure that students receive the attention they need and assign academic advisors to help them comfortably settle into their programs of study.

  • An intensive, five-week French as a Foreign Language summer immersion program is available for non-francophone students at École de langues de l’Université Laval (ELUL). There is no tuition, but an activity fee applies. 

Openings are limited for this type of exchange, which is structured to guarantee student admission based on criteria defined in the agreement (number of openings, choice of level and program of study, etc.).
