Applying for exchange

So you've decided you want to apply for a semester-based exchange!

Before you start the application process make sure you have confirmed that you are eligible and know where you want to go.

If you are having difficulty at any stage of the application process, please contact an Internships and Global Experiences Coordinator for help. Do not contact your host institution directly as all enquiries must be made through Global Experiences until you are formally accepted.

Applications for Semester 1, 2023 are now closed!

We are very pleased to announce that our global experiences including Semester 2, 2022 Exchange and Winter 2022 Experiences will recommence on a country-by-country basis. We understand how important these opportunities are for you, and our teams have been working diligently behind the scenes to ensure these can be offered safely as we continue to monitor the evolution of the COVID-19 pandemic and other global safety considerations.

Make sure to research your travel destination(s) and prepare accordingly, by reviewing all the FAQs.

1. Complete a progression check

Progression checks (or program planners) allow students to self-check the courses they have already completed, and those remaining in their UQ program.

Make sure you are aware of the course requirements of your UQ program before completing the progression check/program planner.

Important: Going on exchange in your final semester may delay your graduation date.
