How does it work?
As a UNSW student, you can study overseas at one of our partner institutions for either 1 semester, or 1 year.
Student exchange is part of your degree. The way it works is that you remain enrolled at UNSW while on exchange and, at the end of your exchange, you bring a full-time credit load back to your UNSW degree. Exchange does not add extra time to your studies.
A student exchange program is always a full-time workload, regardless of whether you're enrolled full-time or part-time at UNSW. For each semester you are on exchange, you will be enrolled in 24 unit of credits (even if you take on 18 units of credit).
The courses you take and pass at the partner university are credited back to your UNSW degree (to a maximum of 24 credit units per semester). However, the specific marks you attain for each course are not transferred. Your transcript simply shows satisfactory for the courses transferred. You will receive a copy of the partner university's transcript at the end of your exchange.
