Current Experiences

Canada - Germany Exchange (EUF + RDP)

Europa-Universitat Flensburg (Flensburg, Germany) and Red Deer Polytechnic have established a mutually beneficial student exchange agreement that supports one or two students each year to study at the other higher education institution. One student may study for one year, or two students may each study for one semester, annually from each institution. Both institutions are committed to a collaborative partnership that supports student success.
