UC Global Exchange – application deadline 1 September

Do your OE with UC!

Don’t miss your chance to apply for UC’s Global Exchange programme and discover the life changing experience that comes with studying overseas – applications for Semester 2 2020 close Sunday 1 September.

Our Global Exchange programme is a unique opportunity, allowing

you to study for either a semester or a year at one of our many partner universities, as part of your UC degree! And with over 60 partner universities around the globe you can choose to study in some amazing locations, including Singapore, France and Denmark, to the UK, USA and more.

The great thing about our Global Exchange programme is that you pay your tuition fees to UC and not to the partner university. We also offer a travel award to eligible students participating in the 2020 Global Exchange programme (terms and conditions apply.)

Jake McConnell studied towards his Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering on exchange at University of Colorado-Boulder in 2019.

“DO IT. Make it work, and everywhere overseas is a great time! I have a whole new set of friends (like family) overseas in Colorado. The exchange opened my eyes to a whole new culture and way of socialising!”

Find out more and apply NOW!

Check out the UC Global Exchange website for all you need to know about going on exchange, including where you can go and how to apply.

Drop-in sessions to talk to our Exchange team will be running, by appointment, until 29 August. Check out the UC Global Exchange website for more, including session times and how to book an appointment.
