With UTS Global Exchange, you could study overseas at a UTS partner university for one or two sessions - all while getting credit back to your UTS degree.
With over 240 exchange partners in over 40 countries, Global Exchange is your chance to explore the world, and gain skills and experiences that will make you a confident and adaptable global citizen.
How does Exchange Work?
While you are studying overseas, you remain enrolled full-time at UTS and receive credit towards your UTS degree. In most cases, you will be able to combine travel and study without adding extra time to your studies.
Check out our student blog (opens an external site) of exchange experiences of UTS students around the world or read about other UTS students’ experiences.
Study in English
The majority of our partner universities teach in English; therefore you are not required to speak the language of your host country. However, going on exchange is also an opportunity to learn a new language, even if you will not study in that language.
If you are learning a language other than English at UTS and wish to study in that language while on exchange, you will need to have attained UTS level 8 language proficiency before your departure.
Global Exchange, Global Short Programs or Study Abroad?
The UTS Global Exchange program gives students enrolled at UTS the opportunity to study at an official UTS Exchange partner institution (opens an external site). You continue to pay your tuition fees at UTS and will receive credit towards your UTS degree.
Global Short Programs
If you don't want to spend an entire session of your course overseas, you may want to consider undertaking a short program overseas through the UTS Global Short Programs.
If you would like to study for a semester at an institution that is not a UTS Global Exchange partner, you may be able to organise this independently, provided the institution has a Study Abroad or Visiting Student Program. Study Abroad attracts a tuition fee in most cases, based on the number of subject credit points you study at the other institution.
