King's understands that integrating an exchange or study abroad programme into your degree can be an expensive venture. The following financial assistance is available to students:
King’s students may apply for funding to a maximum of $2,000 Canadian through the Study/Work International Fund (please see below). This funding is to assist with living costs, return airfare and health insurance.
King’s students may apply for a funding stipend to a maximum of $4,000 Canadian to assist with living costs, return airfare and health insurance. No separate application is required for this funding—students are considered for this funding as part of their application to participate in the exchange programme.
The Study/Work International Fund (SWIF) provides funding to King's students in financial need who wish to undertake an international placement as part of their academic programme.
