Canadian Year in Freiburg Student Exchange Program

The Canadian Year in Freiburg Student Exchange Program is now accepting Canadian applications for the program in Germany starting in Fall 2017 (Program runs from Sep. 2017 to July 2018).

Students must have had 2 years of German/completed the A2 level. The program offers 5-6 required full semester courses and students can also take courses at the University of Freiburg and its “Sprachlehrinstitut” to achieve their full-year credit load.

For 2017/18 the CYF is again offering an “Academic Recognition Award” (awards range from $1000 to $1,500) on a competition basis, for applicants to the program with an overall GPA of at least 85%.

To apply, eligible students write a “letter of intent”, as well as a paragraph in German explaining why they want to take part in the program and what they expect to gain from their year abroad. (The Award application with instructions is on p.3 in the program application Word Doc.)

Here is the link to the program page, with the program information and application form (must be received by March 3, 2017; please contact Christian Thomas,, if you are considering applying after this date).

There is also a Facebook page for the program, where students can communicate with previous CYF participants.

Please find below information (flyer, poster) and the procedures applying students should follow, e.g. they need to register themselves online as students at Acadia University, before their application can be processed.

Please contact Christian Thomas, CYF Coordinator,, if you have any questions.
