Expand your world on an international exchange

Students in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences (AHS) are encouraged to participate in an international exchange opportunity. You can spend either one or two terms studying aboard. Courses taken while on exchange may be credited towards your University of Waterloo (UW) degree. Therefore, you can complete degree requirements while getting an experience of a lifetime!

AHS has more than 40 student exchange agreements in over 20 different countries.

By participating in an International exchange you have the opportunity to:

  • learn about a different culture by experiencing it firsthand;
  • learn to become independent, flexible, and confident;
  • make friends with people from different cultural and social backgrounds;
  • study courses within a different culture while obtaining credit toward your UW degree.
