Student exchange administration and forms

Manage things at home while you're overseas

Find forms to manage your enrolment while you're away, and evaluation forms to complete. You can also download presentations to give to your host university.

Our online exchange University Exchange Partner List indicates which partnerships are open for applications during this semester and outlines important conditions and restrictions that may apply at partner destinations. While the University has many partnerships, exchange places may not be available at all destinations every semester. There is no guarantee that an agreement that has been suspended in one semester will re-open the next semester.

For current students on exchange

Predeparture Guide and Presentation

The most recent Predeparture Guide (pdf) and Predeparture Session presentation provide an overview of predeparture preparation but also includes procedures post-arrival overseas, as well as, instructions on academic matters such as academic approval and post-exchange credit transfer.

Academic Approval Form for Nominated Exchange Student

The Academic Approval Form for Nominated Exchange Student (pdf) is to be used to finalise actual units to be credited on exchange. Completed forms must be submitted to your home faculty at least four weeks prior to the start of your exchange or prior to your departure from Australia, whichever is earlier.

Exchange Experience Evaluations

At the conclusion of your exchange, you are encouraged to complete the Student Experience Survey to share your exchange experience with Sydney Abroad and prospective exchange students. Through this survey, you can also express interest in sharing your experiences in person with University of Sydney students at events such as Open Day, Info Day, Exchange Information Sessions and the Pre-departure Information Session.

If you require further materials, such as a bundle of printed Study Abroad Program brochures and posters, contact your Exchange Adviser or our reception at and we will mail these to your host university’s Exchange/Study Abroad Office.
