Planning your study

If you’re thinking about going on student exchange, speak with your Allocated Course Advising Office first to design a study plan that will suit you.

Am I eligible?

Undergraduate applicants

To be eligible to apply, you’ll need:

  • To be on track to complete normally 18 points at UWA by the end of the current semester (36 by the time you go on exchange)
  • A status of 'Good Standing' (pass at least half of enrolled units). You can check this in studentConnect
  • Sufficient points remaining in your current course to allow for full-time enrolment during exchange (18 points if applying for one semester, 36 points if applying for two semesters). 

Postgraduate applicants

To be eligible to apply, you’ll need:

  • To be on track to complete normally 18 points at UWA by the end of the current semester (undergraduate or postgraduate study counts towards this requirement), 36 by the time you go on exchange
  • A status of 'Good Standing' (pass at least half of enrolled units). You can check this in studentConnect
  • Sufficient points remaining in your current course to allow for full-time enrolment during exchange (18 points if applying for one semester, 36 points if applying for two semesters). 

If you have completed any postgraduate study by the end of the current semester, your application will be assessed using only your postgraduate WAM (weighted average mark). If you are applying for postgraduate exchange in the last year of your undergraduate degree, your application will be assessed using your undergraduate WAM.

Final notes

Some exchange institutions may have WAM or ‘points completed’ requirements. Check Global Studio for details.

You can view the list of programs that consider students with a WAM below 65, or view the list of programs that consider students with 18 points completed (36 points by the time you go on exchange).

At first, it was daunting being away from everything that is familiar to you for a year, but then you get settled and excitement takes over. I learned so much [by going on exchange], particularly about what I want to study in the future.
