Centrelink payments while on Student Exchange

Will I receive Centrelink payments while on Student Exchange?

If you are currently in receipt of AustudyAbstudy or Youth Allowance you may continue to receive payments if enrolled in EXCH exchange units for your exchange. The Global Learning Office can provide you with a letter that you can show to Centrelink to inform them about your participation in the Exchange Program. It is your responsibility to request the letter after your Pre-Departure Session. Please seek some advice from Centrelink and ensure that your travel dates won't impact your eligibility to receive payments.
