Apply for an exchange place*
Some winter/summer programs at Curtin’s partner universities may be available to students on an exchange basis. If you are nominated for a short-term exchange place, you will not pay tuition fees to the partner university, you will enrol in Curtin units for the approved academic credit.

*Short Term Exchange places are dependent on the current balance between Curtin and the Partner institution. Please be advised that short term exchange places may not always be available.  If an exchange place is not available you can still apply for a direct place. When this is the case you will pay your tuition directly to the partner institution.
