  •  UCChile Virtual Exchange would allow UNSW students to take a full-time course load (4 courses = 24 UoC) of Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile coursework virtually.
  • Online course available in a synchronous format.
  • Students participating in a virtual exchange will be expected to engage fully in the courses virtually during Santiago, Chile hours.

Course Structure:

  • Exchange students will be able to enrol in up to six UCChile courses; however they may only transfer back 24 UoC, depending on their personal preferences and academic requirements from UNSW. Students may complete a part-time load at UCChile for a ‘hybrid-virtual exchange’ where they take one or two courses at the partner and two or one courses, respectively, at UNSW simultaneously; however it is advised to take a full time load at the partner as online courses will be held synchronously.
  • Students may review course offerings open to international students in this guide, regularly updated two months before the start of each semester. For more information about courses available at UCChile, check out the online course registration platform, Buscador UC. Please ensure to select the online course format.
  • Exchange students will work with the UCChile Exchange team to identify and enrol in online classes.
