Where can I go on exchange for a semester or year?

Opportunities are available in locations all over the world. When searching for a suitable location the following factors should be considered:

  • What type of experience do I want?
  • What is my preferred country?
  • How long do I want to go overseas and when do I want to start?
  • Does the location have universities that teach units in English?
  • Does the location have universities with units in my discipline (core units) and/or am I able to use my electives?
