Study Abroad and Exchange
Study Abroad and Exchange Programmes at UC
Studying overseas is a life-changing experience that broadens your horizons and opens a global network of opportunities. Develop yourself academically, geographically and culturally by studying in another country and kick start your career with a global perspective. Check out our 2020 Study Abroad Prospectus for more information.
The Study Abroad programme is for students wanting to study at UC for one or more semesters as part of an overseas degree.
If you are studying at one of UC’s partner institutions you may be eligible for the incoming student exchange programme.
If you are an incoming student applying to study at UC under the Study Abroad or Student Exchange programme, you should submit your application by these dates;
- Semester One (February to June) – the closing date for applications is the 15th of November for Study Abroad applicants and 1st of November for Exchange applicants of the previous year.
- Semester Two (July to November) – the closing date for applications is the 15th of April
Applications after these dates will be processed, but please ensure you allow enough time to make the necessary preparations, including applying for a visa.
Applications for accommodation are due by the 1st of December (of the previous year) for Semester One programmes and by the 1st of May for Semester Two programmes.
