Overseas exchange

Exchange in the Master of Architecture

The faculty may approve international exchange for qualified students in semesters one to three of the Master of Architecture. All students must complete the final semester at the University of Sydney.

Exchanges may be for one semester only. Students must apply through the Study Abroad and Exchange unit of the International Office. Each student's program must be approved in consultation with the program director of the degree.

Students who wish to, may go on exchange for one semester at the commencement of the degree and use this both to satisfy the 'Architectural Experience Requirement' for entry to the degree, and for credit towards the first year of the program.

Students should plan to follow the enrolment pattern prescribed for their chosen semester of exchange as closely as possible. Exchange units should be taken as part of the degree and not in addition to the degree requirements. Consideration should be given to how you will be able to complete your degree requirements when you return, paying attention to the semester of offer of the core units.

Exchange students are required to enrol in a full-time load at the University of Sydney in the semester of exchange, and will incur the tuition costs associated with that load. No tuition costs will be incurred with the partner university.

Specially designated units of study will be recorded on the transcript. A result of 'R' for 'Satisfied Requirements' will be recorded by the University against each successfully completed unit. The transcript of the exchange university will be the official detailed record of exactly what was completed during the exchange. Exchange results will not count towards a student's weighted average mark.

For more information please contact either the Study Abroad and Exchange Office or the Faculty of Architecture, Design and Planning Student Administration Centre.
