Credit Equivalency: 5.0 credits at UofT = 30 Fudan credits. Students must obtain at least 6 Fudan credits (1.0 UofT credit)

Housing: On-campus housing is not guaranteed, but host institution will help in securing housing. Please refer to Fudan ISS website

How to apply (Exchange): UofT students can apply through CIE Learning Abroad to participate in this program as exchange students.  Exchange students will pay U of T tuition (equivalent to taking 1.0 FCE course at UofT), and application fee and tuition fee at Fudan University will be waived.  However, number of exchange spots is limited.  Exchange students must have their courses pre-assessed for transfer credit before their departure.  Click on Learn More button below to apply.  Application deadline is February 14, 2024.

How to apply (Non-Exchange): Students can choose to apply to the Fudan University independently and pay tuition fee directly to the host institution.  After completing the program, credits earned as a Non-Exchange student may be considered for Post-Admission Transfer Credits, but transfer credit is not guaranteed.  You must follow your home faculty’s Post-Admission Transfer Credit procedures. It is your responsibility to consult with your Faculty Registrar’s office regarding transfer credits for independent (non-exchange) summer programs. Post-Admission Transfer Credits are different from transfer credits earned through exchange programs, and there is no guarantee that Post-Admission Transfer Credits can be applied to fulfill your program requirements. There may be fees to apply for a transfer credit assessment. For further information, please contact the Learning Abroad office at
