Students from Poly

All the members of PolyExplore will tell you: getting some experience abroad is awesome You simply can’t miss it!

The “Office of the Programs of International Exchanges” (Bureau du programme d’échanges internationaux) allows all the students from Polytechnique Montréal to go on an exchange for 1 or 2 semesters.
The exchange, even if not mandatory, makes up for an integral part of your degree, so the classes that you will take abroad will be recognized here at Polytechnique Montréal and your studies will not be further prolonged.
Following a mandatory session during which all information regarding exchange programs will be given to you, you will be able to access to the website WebÉchange and check the international links to get an idea of the available destinations.

You can also check out the articles published in « Le Polyscope », the magazine of Polytechnique Montréal, that concern students who went for an exchange.


Polytechnique has agreements with more than 200 universities in more than 30 countries. You’ll find for sur a destination that appeals to you!

To go for an exchange, your study records have to meet some conditions, such as a certain amount of credits already obtained or an average higher than a certain mark.

If you’re leaving for an exchange, PolyExplore and PolyBuddy will allow you to meet students of your future university that can give you top-ranking information on it.

If you came back from an exchange, PolyExplore will allow you to continue your international experience. After having visited a country, it’s now your turn to show yours to foreign students! You can keep on mingling with French, Spanish,German students….
