UC Global Exchange Application Deadline – extended to 1 October!

Did assignments get in the way of your Global Exchange application? 

Great news, the deadline to apply for the UC Global Exchange Programme in Semester 2 2020 has been extended to 1 October 2019*!

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).

*Please note that if places are limited at partner universities, priority will be given to students who applied by the original 1 September deadline. Some universities may have early deadlines, see website above for details.

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!”

How UC made Rachel’s Parisian dream come true

Rachel Liao is excited to be embarking on the experience of a lifetime as she prepares to study at Science Po Paris, thanks to the UC Student Exchange Programme.

“I’m stoked to be living in France. Learning French has been a passion of mine since high school and my high school trip to France in 2015 really motivated me to keep going with the language. I have been itching to go back!” Rachel told us.

Sciences Po is an international research university, ranking among the finest institutions in the fields of humanities and social sciences.

And, as Rachel explains, “it’s also one of the top Political Science universities in the world.”

Which for a political science major like herself, is an incredible opportunity.

“From areas of study to ways of teaching, Science Po’s courses differ widely to what’s available at UC, and I’m particularly looking forward to a methodology workshop on Diplomacy and International Negotiations this semester.”

In addition to her studies, Rachel is eager to immerse herself in the French culture, spend time exploring another part of the world and taking her language skills to the next level.

Rachel sees her exchange as a great opportunity to both finish her undergrad degree, and get her OE experience. It also gives her the chance to diversify her degree by experiencing a global perspective on her studies.

And the free return airfares UC offers to eligible students didn’t hurt either.

“While I’ve always wanted to go to back to France, the UC Student Exchange programme made the decision much easier and the financial and institutional support I could receive as an exchange student was really appealing to me.”

Rachel will depart New Zealand in late August, ready to begin her two semester stint at Sciences Po in early September 2018. Keep an eye out for more on Rachel’s Parisian exchange experience during her student takeover of the ucnz Instagram account, later this year.

If you’ve been wanting to see more of the world then the UC Student Exchange programme, with over 60 partner universities worldwide, could be just what you’re looking for.
