  • Students awarded an exchange placement are selected on the quality of their application, interview and academic results.
  • You will be notified by your student email address if you have been selected for an interview and if you have been selected into the program.
  • Students selected to study on exchange must attend compulsory briefings and a pre departure meeting at UC. Failure to attend these meetings will jeopardise your exchange placement.
  • Once selected into the program you are required to complete an application form for your host university.
  • Acceptance from your host university is required to confirm your exchange placement.
  • The exchange application process is extensive and time consuming, and requires an ability to meet deadlines and attend scheduled meetings.
  • The UC student exchange program will assist you with obtaining a placement with a host university and provide you with information and assistance required to organise your exchange overseas.
  • But remember you are responsible for obtaining your student visa to your host country, arranging your travel and organising your finances and personal needs.
*Cancellation Policy:

It is your responsibility to contact the UC Study Abroad office if you have any doubts about your eligibility requirements. If you need to cancel your application or placement, you must notify us in writing at and your appeal for a refund will be assessed dependent on compassionate or extraneous circumstances (such as a death of a family member, accident or injury or other reasons as submitted and evidenced by you).
