How to Apply

Planning early is the best way to ensure you will get the most out of your time abroad.

It is important that you understand the requirements and structure of your course (and major/s) to ensure that you select overseas programs that can transfer back to your degree. To help understand your course structure, you should consult the Faculty Handbook published in the year in which you commenced your course (eg. if you began a Bachelor of Commerce in 2016, you should look at the Business School Undergraduate Handbook from 2016). Pre-2017 Handbooks can be found in the handbook archive.

Example application timeline

1. Select your program > 2. Apply for academic credit > 3. Complete Sydney Abroad application > 4. Apply to host university > 5. Receive academic approval & host acceptance (October/November) > 6. Apply for OS HELP (if eligible), book flights & visa > 7. Fly safe!

Receiving your academic credit approval can take up to 10 weeks – so it’s very important that you submit your application for academic credit to your faculty as soon as soon as you have selected your program of choice.
