Semester and year-long exchange programs

Going on a semester or year-long exchange is a great way to experience other cultures and add a unique edge to your Curtin degree.

With over 150 international partner institutions and campuses in 30 countries, there’s a destination for you!

When selecting a destination and host partner, remember that you need to obtain credit for your study, so sometimes the course you are studying may direct you to your destination. You’ll remain enrolled at Curtin for the duration of your exchange studies and you’ll also be enrolled in the host university overseas. You will pay tuition to Curtin and do not pay fees to the host university.

Staying open-minded and adventurous is the key!

There were so many amazing things about going on exchange. My top 3 would be having the experience of living independently on Campus at NTU, meeting some incredible people and making life-long friends from all over the globe and having the opportunity to go travelling around South East Asia.
