India Students

The Ontario India Student Exchange Program is open to students at participating universities and affiliated colleges/institutions in India. OIN exchange students enrol in a set of courses at a participating Ontario university for one, and sometimes, two terms. The exchange is open to Indian students at partner institutions in all fields of study. Prospective applicants should be aware that Ontario partner universities reserve the right to admit students on exchange.

The application and placement process is as follows: students are nominated to OIN by their home institution based on process and selection criteria determined by the latter. Applicants list three Ontario partner institutions on their application form in order of preference. Wherever possible, OIN places applicants in the institution identified as the first choice on the form. Applicants also indicate, on the form, whether they are applying for one or two terms.The list of institutions and number of terms listed in the application form may not be changed once the form has been submitted by the Indian institution to OIN.  It is also important to be cognizant of the fact that OIN may only be able to place an applicant for one term/semester even if the preference, as indicated in the application form, is for two terms/semesters. The acceptance letter sent to successful applications will contain all relevant information.

  • Exchange students are registered as 'non-degree' students at Ontario institutions. the term distinguishes between a university's own students and exchange students.
  • OIN exchange students do not pay tuition fees at the host university/institution in Ontario.  
  • Information on partner institutions in Ontario, as well as some general information on postsecondary education in Ontario, can be found in the Ontario India (OIN) Student Exchange Program, Information for Indian Students document posted below. Prospective applicants should contact the international office at their home institution if they require further information.
  • Applicants should contact the international office of the Ontario host institution at which they have been placed only after receiving a letter of acceptance from the host institution in Ontario.   

Only students from our partner institutions may apply.
