Exchange Students

Exchange students are welcome to study at Salve Regina for a semester or a full academic year. Semester sessions are offered August to December or January to May. Exchange students are required to arrive a few days before the start of the semester for international student orientation.

Exchange students come to us from our partner universities abroad:

Exchange students are housed on campus and have access to the same programs and services as full-time students, including the McKillop Library, computer labs and health and counseling services. Students can participate in extracurricular activities, attend campus lectures and volunteer for community service initiatives.
