You are responsible for ensuring your studies completed overseas are credited to your UC academic record!
Your host university will send your academic transcript to UC and it will be forwarded to you to arrange credit transfer.
On your return you will attend a debriefing meeting with the Study Abroad and Exchange Officers who will give you advice on the process of applying for credit transfer.
Share your Experience: Become a Study Abroad Ambassador!
The Study Abroad and Exchange Office encourages you to make the most of your time overseas, even after returning to UC. If you have at least one semester left at UC, we invite you to become a Study Abroad and Exchange Ambassador and share your experience with other students. Not only is this new program a great way to get involved and share your new passion with others, but it will also enhance your resume through leadership and service and you will receive a certificate upon completion.
Shipping items home
If at the end of your exchange you find you have accumulated too much to fit into your suitcase, you may want to ship some items home.
Before you decide to ship these items, it would be a good idea to look at the cost of taking excess baggage on the flight with you, as in some cases this can actually cost the same as shipping. If excess baggage is too expensive, or if you intend to travel after your exchange and do not want to carry the luggage with you, then shipping is your best option.
When deciding what to ship home, it is essential that you are aware of a few things:
- Shipped items can take a few months to arrive in Australia.
- Do not ship items you will require immediately upon arriving home.
- Make sure your items are insured for their entire value if your package is lost during shipping and is insured then you will be able to purchase replacement items. If your items are not insured then you will be left out of pocket.
- Do not ship valuable or sentimental items home. If you ship valuable or sentimental items home you risk having them stolen or lost during the journey.
