How to choose your courses

Here are the steps to follow when choosing your courses.

1. Find a program of study

UdeM offers 600 undergraduate and graduate programs in 14 faculties and schools.

To participate in an exchange program, you must choose your courses within a single UdeM program. Most programs are open to exchange students.

To find out about the programs offered at UdeM, visit the Websites of our faculties and schools:


Engineering and Business administration programs are offered by our affiliate schools, which manage independently their partnerships and student exchanges.


2. Check the list of programs with particular requirements. Please note that for migratory and academic reasons, it is not possible to do an internship as part of an exchange at UdeM.


3. Choose courses offered within the program in which you want to study (see the list of courses offered by the selected program of study : Select a program and click on “Structure of Program”.


4. Register for the required number of courses

At the undergraduate level (bachelor’s), you must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credits (4 courses) per semester and a maximum of 15 credits (5 courses) per semester.

Undergraduate courses begin with the number 1, 2, 3, or 4 (e.g., POL 1000).

At the graduate level (master's, doctorate), you must be enrolled in a minimum of 6 credits (2 courses) per semester and a maximum of 9 credits (3 courses).

Graduate courses begin with the number 5, 6, or 7 (e.g., GEO 6000)


5. Taking a language course

Students participating in an exchange program may take one language course of 3 credits per semester. This does not apply to students in a study program focused on the learning of a language.


6. Propose a preliminary study plan

The study plan proposal allows the selected department to know your areas of interest, assess whether you have the required prerequisites, and know whether your course selection is feasible. To propose your preliminary study plan, you must fill out this form.


Please note that your study plan may change upon your arrival due to scheduling conflicts or a limited number of places in your chosen courses. It is therefore recommended to make several course choices for each semester considered.
