With the UC Student Exchange Programme you can:

  • Pay tuition fees to UC, get an international experience
  • Travel and see new places
  • Study at some of the most prestigious universities for teaching and research around the world
  • Meet new people and develop life-long friendships around the world
  • Credit applied to your UC degree (subject to approvals from appropriate departments and Colleges)
  • Receive UC’s economy airfare offer (conditions apply)

Alex Holmes studied for a semester in Austria on exchange at WU (Vienna University of Economics and Business) towards his Bachelor of Commerce. He is now a Master of Commerce student.

“Academically my exchange gave me a different perspective through not only my courses, but also through the different perspectives and knowledge that my friends had; I saw it as a really great opportunity to go and experience other cultures while still at UC. There are so many cool places to see and so many things to do so make sure you give it a go!”
