Wishing to Go Abroad?
If you could study overseas, what would you do?

Student Exchange, Short Courses or Study Abroad: What's the difference?
You study at one of our exchange partner universities. For these institutions, you remain enrolled as a full time student and pay tuition at UC while overseas. Currently UC has partners in Europe, Asia, North America and South America.
Don't want to study overseas for a semester or full year? Only want to go for 2 to 6 weeks during your winter or summer semesters? Take a look at our short term courses abroad.
If you are unable to find an exchange program that suits your needs, you are free to research universities outside of our exchange partners. While UC has some study abroad partners, you are free to research your own options. In this instance you will pay tuition fees directly to your chosen university. This option is known as study abroad. While most of the process for study abroad will be done through your host university, you will still need to submit our online application form for us to keep track of you and assist you in receiving credit at UC for your overseas studies.
Contact the UC Study Abroad Office for more information.
Things to consider
- Which host university in another country will have subjects related to your degree?
- How will you handle the difference in culture?
- Would you like to learn a new language?
- Do you want a big city or small town?
- What will the climate be like?
Gaining credit towards your degree at UC
When studying overseas you must take subjects that will be credited towards your UC degree. To be granted credit towards subjects you must find subjects at your host institution that are comparable. You will need to obtain advice and receive approval from your faculty in selecting relevant units that can be credited to your UC degree. Students should research universities of interest and investigate if a preferred university offers the course and subjects required.
