Prepare to go on exchange

Once you've been accepted to participate in the semester-based exchange program, it's time to get ready to go!

Below you'll find some tips to help you make the most of your experience while ensuring you keep safe and healthy while overseas.

Work your way through the IGET Pre-departure Essentials Checklist to help you prepare.

6. Flights and accommodation

We do not recommend that you purchase plane tickets until you receive an official acceptance letter from your host university and the appropriate visa for your exchange.

On each host university page, you can find a link to on- and off-campus accommodation options under the ''Accommodation and costs' tab.

Where to find accommodation options

Once accepted into the global experience, the host university should provide you with information on accommodation choices and application instructions. It is your responsibility to secure accommodation for the duration of your experience. We recommend that you apply for accommodation as soon as possible in order to secure a place. 

Housing Shortage
We have been informed by a number of host universities that some countries are experiencing housing shortages, which may affect accommodation availability for exchange students. You are strongly encouraged to research your accommodation options early.
