This award provides you with the flexibility to design a program that
advances both your professional and personal goals. In consultation
with your host organisation, the one to four month program may include
activities such as a shadowing program, work placement, attendance at a
conference, participation in a short course, or peer-to-peer learning.
The Australian Government recognises the many enduring benefits of
international exchanges undertaken during the years of undergraduate
education. To encourage greater student mobility, the Australian
Government funds Australian higher education providers to subsidise the
costs to students participating in student exchanges which include
tuition fee waiver and credit transfer.
Only Australian higher education providers are eligible to apply for
funding for international student exchange programmes.
Students (Australian and international) wishing to apply for student
subsidies available under these international student exchange
programmes should contact the International Office of their institution.
