What is an Exchange?

Temple University has established exchange partnerships with a number of universities in countries around the world. Exchange programs give you the chance to study at an overseas university, and "in exchange" give a student from the overseas university a chance to study at Temple. Exchanges provide a full immersion experience at a foreign university. In most cases, exchange students take classes with students from the host country and have the opportunity to get involved in campus clubs, organizations, and activities.  

Exchanges are most appropriate for an independent and highly motivated student looking for a fully immersive study abroad experience. Students who choose this option are expected to adapt to what is often a different, more autonomous educational structure, and is therefore best suited for students with a strong academic history.

Exchange participants are required to take a full-time course load while abroad and will earn transfer credit. Some exchanges have a limited number of placements and can be quite competitive; therefore, students are encouraged to consider alternative options when applying. Below is a list of institutions with which Temple has exchange agreements.

IMPORTANT COVID-19 INFORMATION

Given the global changes amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, some programs may not run. For programs that do run, your study abroad experience may differ from how you imagined it. As we move forward, we will continue to monitor developments related to COVID-19 and will provide you with updates specific to your program. Please visit the COVID-19 Guidance For Students Studying Abroad on External or Exchange Programs page for general information applicable to students planning to study abroad during a future term. That page includes decision dates for future terms and will be regularly updated as guidance changes and decisions are made and communicated to students.

Please note, if approval to study abroad is granted, students will be required to acknowledge the risks of participation by reviewing and signing the COVID-19 Acknowledgement of Risks form which will be posted on your program home page.
