Outgoing student exchange

Students are eligible to spend one or two semesters overseas at a partner university and receive credit towards their program at UNSW, while living and travelling in a new country.

The courses you take while on exchange are credited back to your UNSW program as transfer credit, bear in mind the marks you obtain while on exchange are not transferred and no credit is transferred for any course you fail.

More information on outbound student exchange can be found here.


We strongly recommend you start planning your proposed exchange early as it will take approximately nine months from lodging your application to enrolling at the host university.

Interested students can apply directly here or consult with A/Prof Julien Epps
