Study abroad and student exchange

Study in Australia or head overseas as part of your degree

Combine study and international travel: we have a range of study programs for international students wanting to study in Australia.  We also have over 270 programs for our students wanting to study overseas as part of their degree.

If you are...

An international student looking to study in Australia as part of your degree, you are an inbound student, and should take a look at our study in Australia section.

A prospective student interested in the options to study overseas as part of your degree, you are an outbound student and should refer to our study overseas section.

Advantages of studying abroad

Whether you’re an international student interested in coming to Australia, or an Australian student contemplating distant travel, you’ll be assured of an amazing, life-changing experience. Here are our top 5 reasons to participate in student exchange or study abroad:
1

See the world and visit a dream destination

The world is a big place and lucky for us (and you) we have exchange partners in nearly every corner of it. Take a look at our list of dream destinations.

Coming to Australia? We have a beautiful country and we are based in the middle of the dynamic Sydney City. You’ll find that Sydney is not only a fantastic beachside location, but is also a great base for exploring greater Australia and our neighbouring countries.

2

Hone your language skills and immerse yourself in a new culture

Learn some key phrases (or more), try a national dish, try a new dance, learn to cook, experiment with clothing choices… There is a lot encompassed by the word 'culture' and many new things that you will try when studying overseas!

3

Make lifelong friends

Studying overseas is an amazing experience and you are likely to form strong bonds with those you share the experience with. Friends make every experience better!

4

Discover confidence and a sense of independence that you never knew you had

Challenge what you thought you knew about yourself, try many new things for the first time, and really get an understanding of that phrase 'personal development'.

5

Get credit towards your degree

You'll do all of the above, get credit towards your degree and study at a world-class university. Seems like a pretty good deal…
