Semester/Year Exchange

Exchange programs are available to current students and provide the opportunity to engage in an overseas experience for a full semester or academic year.

Planning early helps ensure that you can complete an overseas exchange program during your University of Sydney course. This gives you enough time to research your options, plan your enrolment, save your money, and get the advice you need before submitting an application.
