Preparing your application


Make an appointment with an Exchange Coordinator to verify your eligibility to apply for exchange. Prior to the meeting, students are expected to do some research. Be sure to review the 'Outgoing Exchange' page of the OCAD U website along with our current list of 'Exchange Partners.' Select up to a maximum of two schools you wish to apply to.
