Optimum time to go on Student Exchange
The best time for you to study overseas will depend on your UWA course requirements. Provided you meet the eligibility requirements including completion of the equivalent of at least one academic year at UWA.
The second semester of the second year is the earliest that most undergraduate student will be permitted to go on exchange. You are encouraged to save broadening and elective units for any exchange period as they allow flexibility in your exchange study plan. It may be inadvisable to go on exchange in the final semester of your course if you need to complete a large number of core units.
Postgraduate students should check with the Study Abroad Office and their Faculty Advisor for special academic requirements.
