Go Abroad On Exchange

Why go on exchange?

The benefits of going on exchange are both personal and educational.
Educationally you gain an insight and exposure to different methods of learning, as well as the chance to study with outstanding academics in our partner universities.
On a personal level you will gain experience and maturity by living outside of your comfort zone. As well as making new friends and enjoying the excitement of living in another country, you will develop increased self confidence and self reliance. All of the skills you gain on a personal level are beneficial as transferable skills when developing your career later on in life. For more information on the benefits of going on exchange, please attend one of our webinars or weekly Q&A clinics on exchange.

What is College Wide Exchange?

Combine study and travel! The college wide exchange is an opportunity to live and study in one of our North American, Australian or Asian partner universities, while earning credit towards your degree.
Students can take part in the exchange during their Junior Sophister year (fourth year for Engineering students)

You can also join our Facebook group for up to date information on application and deadlines or for updates on our partner universities.
