Since 2001 the University of Alberta and Dresden University of Technology in Germany have participated in a student exchange program.  This opportunity is available to 3rd year DDS students who are in good academic standing.  Up to 10 students may participate, if more than 10 eligible candidates apply then a draw will be used to determine which students will attend.  

The exchange typically lasts 3 weeks, 2 of these weeks occur during the break between winter semester and intersession.  

Funding is available, and often covers the majority of the costs associated with the trip.
