 Students Exchange Program between Ginling College and Mount Saint Vincent University

 Mount Saint Vincent University (MSVU) is located in Halifax, capital of Nova Scotia, along the Atlantic coast in eastern Canada. Halifax is a beautiful port city and Canada's gateway to Europe. It is the world's second largest natural ice-free port and the key location of the St. Lawrence River’s transport in North America. Also, it is the most important economic, political and cultural center on Canada's east coast.

MSVU was originally established for women training by two sisters of Roman church. It developed into a university in 1967 and began to admit male students. So far, male students have accounted for 20%. However, the university still holds the main guiding ideology which aims at providing higher education for women. According to the university rankings on the Maclean’s Magazine, MSVU is one of the top 15 basic bachelor universities.
