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 independent and highly motivated students 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, so you should consider alternative options when applying. Below is a list of institutions with which Temple has exchange agreements.
