Exchange ProgramUniversité de Montréal

Students of Heidelberg University can apply for two study places at the Université de Montréal in Québec / Canada. The Université de Montréal is extremely attractive not only because of its rich range of courses, but also because of its location in Montréal, Canada's second largest city. Students of all subjects can apply, with the exception of medicine and law.



September - end of April (one academic year)

Scholarship benefits   

Tuition waiver.


Intermediate examination or three completed semesters at the time of starting the scholarship, and very good knowledge of French.


You can apply for the exchange programs via an online platform. Information on the required documents can be found on our pages and in the FAQs. If you have any questions about the application process, the Study Abroad Infocenter of the International Relations Department will be happy to help you. Only complete applications can be considered.

For Montreal, a separate application (not mixed with other Canadian exchange options) must be submitted as the application materials must be written in French. However, the report may be written in English. Subsequent submissions only after consultation with Ms. Doris Treichler.
