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 2 2022 are now open!

A final decision to proceed with the in-person global experiences will be made by late March 2022, based on government health regulations and/or travel restrictions at the time.

The health and safety of our students is a top priority, and this approach allows us to start planning these exciting opportunities whilst maintaining the flexibility to adjust our plans.

We understand it might be tempting to start making additional plans, however, please do not make any bookings or apply for visas until after you have received a faculty-approved study plan and host university acceptance.

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.
