You can select three university preferences in your exchange application.
When researching which institution would best suit you and short-listing your preferred institutions, it’s important to consider the following:
Browse the Global Mobility Database to view the universities available. You can filter results by ranking, level of study, language of instruction and subject area to find the best fit for you.
Some of our agreements with partner institutions are university-wide. This means that the majority of academic disciplines offered by that institution are available to University of Sydney students on exchange. Other agreements are faculty-specific, meaning exchange is only available if you are studying a specific discipline (regardless of what else is available at that institution). When browsing the Database you can filter the results by agreement type and faculty to find out what’s available to you.
Most of our international partners have different academic calendars, so you’ll need to make sure their semester dates align with your current course. Information about your host university's academic calendar is available under ‘Academic information’ on each program’s page on the Global Mobility Database.
Our exchange partners offer a wide range of study options that can be credited towards your degree. Availability of subjects will play a big part in determining the destinations you choose.
It is essential you review your course requirements before you apply for exchange to ensure your proposed program can be credited towards your University of Sydney course. Your faculty will assess and approve your overseas study plan, including units of study, after you’ve applied and been nominated for exchange. It is important you preference universities in your application that offer units you can take.
