Semester/Year Exchange

Semester Banner v2

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 and get the advice you need before submitting an application.

Steps to applying for the semester exchange program:
  1. Attend an info session or application workshop
  2. Check the requirements of your University of Sydney course (start by reviewing your Course Handbook).
  3. Speak with a Course Adviser for additional degree planning advice.
  4. Research our partner universities on the Sydney Abroad Global Mobility Database to find out which universities will work best for your course. 
  5. Submit your Semester/Year Exchange application by the specified deadline.
The Semester 1, 2024 Semester/Year Exchange application opened on 30 March 2023.  The application deadline is 5:00pm, Friday 30 June 2023.  

Late application submissions cannot be considered.  Please ensure that you give yourself plenty of time to prepare and submit your application by the deadline.   If you have any questions about the application process, please attend an upcoming info session.

To be eligible for the Semester Exchange Program you need:
  • a weighted average mark (WAM) of at least 50
  • to have completed at least 24 credit points of study at the University of Sydney
  • to be meeting your academic progress requirements.
