There are two categories for applying to study at UWA for either 6 to 12 months:

Student Exchange

  • If your university has a formal agreement with UWA, you can apply to study as an exchange student.
  • This means that you do not pay tuition fees to UWA, but continue to pay tuition fees at your home university

Study Abroad

  • If your university or college does not have a formal student exchange agreement with UWA you can apply to UWA as a study abroad student
  • You can also apply as a study abroad student if you have completed high school but not yet enrolled at a university

This is your chance to study at one of Australia's best and most beautiful universities in an atmosphere that encourages academic achievement, cultural exchange and making life-long friends. Take a look at our 2016/2017 Study Abroad and Exchange Course Guide.
