Tāroia | UC Global Exchange

It’s not too late to think about going on exchange in Semester 2 2023!

The main application round for Semester 2 2023 exchange applications took place during Semester 2 2022. However, our applications are still open for some partner universities.  For most of these universities you will need to apply to UC for selection no later than 15 February 2023 for a Semester 2 2023 exchange to allow time for the UC selection process prior to the partner university deadline. A few universities may have earlier or later deadlines – please check with the UC International Mobility Team.
Applications for exchanges in Semester 2 2023 will be actioned on a rolling basis as they come in. If there are limited places available at a particular partner university, places will be allocated to successful applicants on a “first come first served” basis. You are therefore advised to submit an application immediately for exchanges in Semester 2 2023. Please check the UC Global Exchange website to find out which partner universities are closed for applications, how to plan and apply online for your exchange.

Note: whether we are able to accept late applications or not will be subject to availability of places and the application timeframe or deadlines of UC and the partner universities you wish to apply for.

What’s great about a UC Global Exchange?

  • Pay tuition fees to UC, get an international experience
  • Travel and see new places
  • Credits applied to your UC degree (subject to approvals from appropriate departments and Faculties)
  • Enhance your CV with demonstrable international engagement.

Tāroia | UC’s Global Exchange programme gives you the unique opportunity to study at one of UC’s partner universities worldwide, as part of your UC degree.

The great thing about UC Global Exchange is that you pay your tuition fees to UC and not the partner university, and you can choose to study at some amazing locations around the world, ranging from Denmark, France, to the UK, USA, Spain, Japan, and many more.

UC Global Exchange in 2024

If you are thinking of going on exchange in 2024, now is a good time to start doing some research. It’s always good to start planning early. Note that we have an early application deadline of 1 February 2023 for exchanges to some partner universities such as (which are not limited to), University of British Columbia and Queen’s University (Arts and Science) in Semester 1 2024. See the UC Global Exchange website for details on application deadlines.

We will be running UC Global Exchange Information Seminars and Drop-in sessions in Semester 1 2023. Please check the website above at the beginning of the 2023 academic year for the schedule of these events and the application deadlines.

See you there!
