As a University of Sydney student you’ll have the opportunity to participate in our student exchange program at one of over 270 partner universities.
We have over 270 exchange partner universities in 41 countries; 119 of which are listed among the top 200 universities in the world (Times Higher Education World Ranking 2016-2017). Most of our partner universities also instruct in English – so you are not limited to only English-speaking countries when thinking about where you can go.
The process of applying is not something you need to worry about in any detail until after you commence your degree, but if you’re curious, you can take a look on our student website. Right now, be assured that there are many options for exchange with a lot of support to get you there.
You must complete a full-time year of study (48 credit points) in your degree before you can go on exchange. You can apply in your second semester of your first year if you will complete 48 units by the end of the semester. You will also need a credit average to be eligible to go on exchange.
There are 2 exchange application deadlines, one at the end of each semester. We nominate a year in advance to when you want to go – so planning is key!
We bust some of the most common myths about studying overseas. Find out what the real deal is with travel costs, degree completion times, requirements, language fluency, and more.
