The exchange program isn't all about academia. It's also a cultural exchange. Learning a new language, developing soft skills such as cross cultural appreciation, independence and the greater confidence that together have great potentials for your personal growth and future career developments.
- An experience to beat all others.

Or to understand the fiercely competitive nature of Asian financial markets by studying relevant topics in China, Singapore or Hong Kong? The Student Exchange Program offers all of these insights and experiences.
How can we help?
The Business School offers several scholarships each semester to support our students participation in the International Exchange Program. All students administered by the Business School are automatically assessed for these scholarships. As scholarships become available (by semester and year) you will find them on the Business School Scholarships page.
The Business School Exchange Coordinator, located in the Student Information Office is available to help you plan your degree and to make sure that you are eligible for nomination to the program, and also plan the best sequence of studies to maximise your opportunities whilst on exchange. Due to the necessity of meeting our eligibility requirements, students should do this in their first semester.
For more information on where you are able to study overseas, please see our list of International Exchange Partners.
