Exchange - partner university programs
The University of Sydney has 290 exchange partners in 42 countries, 126 of which are ranked in the top 200 universities in the world (Times Higher Education World Ranking 2018). As an exchange student you remain enrolled at the University of Sydney while you are abroad. Tuition at the host university are waived and you continue to pay normal tuition fees to the University of Sydney, based on the amount of credit you are approved to receive towards your current course. Students from your host institution does the same in reverse, and the result is an exchange of students and places. Academic approval is required for all exchange places and must be obtained prior to the exchange program application deadline.
Non-exchange - partner and non-partner university programs
Where an exchange agreement does not exist, or the partner’s short-term program is not available on an exchange basis, you can apply as a non-exchange student. As a non-exchange student you are not enrolled into exchange studies and are required to pay tuition fees to the host institution. You can apply to receive academic credit towards your University of Sydney course or you can choose to complete these programs without receiving credit towards your course. If you do wish to apply for academic approval we recommend you do so as soon as you have selected an overseas study program.
