How does it work?
As a UNSW student, you can study overseas at one of our partner institutions for either 1, 2 or 3 terms.
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.
While overseas, you will be completing your exchange within the partner university’s academic session/s and you can check the terms you will be away for by comparing UNSW term dates with the Partner’s academic calendar. See Academic Calendar for information on how our new terms work for exchange.
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 half year). 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.
