Wishing to Come to UC?

Video presentation by Emma Sturm from Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada, a Study Abroad student at UC in 2009.


Study Abroad or Exchange is your "passport to the world" and an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life. It is an opportunity to expand your educational horizons; to step outside the boundaries of the expected curriculum and enhance your qualifications with an international perspective.

Study Abroad or Exchange gives you the opportunity to attend the University of Canberra (UC) for one or two semesters while gaining credit and increasing the value of your degree. Study Abroad and Exchange students do not receive an award from UC but receive credit from their home institution for studies successfully completed at UC.


If your university has an Exchange Partnership with UC, you can apply to come to UC on exchange, paying your home university's tuition. You must apply for exchange through your home university's exchange office (or appropriate advisor).

Study Abroad

If your university does not have an exchange partnership with UC, you can always come via our study abroad program, paying UC tuition. You should check whether your university has a Study Abroad Agreement with us, or you can apply through an agent or on your own, directly to us.
