Overseas student exchanges

High school student exchange programs

If you are a high school student in South Australia and you would like to study overseas, improve your foreign language skills, experience a different culture and make new friends, you can participate in a student exchange program that could change your life. Student exchanges can be for one school term (approximately 12 weeks), or up to one school year.

How to begin

To begin your overseas adventure, book your exchange through a registered exchange organisation which includes schools and private organisations.

These schools and organisations are approved and registered with the South Australian Student Exchange Registration Committee.

Tertiary student exchange programs

An increasing number of Australian students study part of their qualification in an overseas institution through a tertiary student exchange program. In addition to experiencing new cultures and learning new languages, students may also gain an advantage in joining the workforce by completing a part of their studies overseas.

All three major universities in South Australia offer their students the opportunity to complete part of their Australian qualification in a partner university overseas. Current students can apply at their university to study abroad. For information on student exchange programs including eligibility criteria, cost and travel see:

Applying for a place in an exchange program

You must apply through your university. The international office at your university can guide you through choosing an institution and a range of other information you will need. Once your application is successful, your university will help you plan your exchange and travel arrangements.

Study costs

The student exchange program is an affordable way of studying overseas and gaining an international experience. Exchange students continue paying tuition fees as usual to their South Australian university while they are overseas - they do not pay the host institution. Exchange students may also be eligible for financial assistance from the government while overseas - see: Study overseas website - Australian Government.

Travelling overseas

Travelling overseas and living in a new country are exciting parts of participating in an exchange program. Before travelling overseas you should always check the latest government travel advice. For other useful tips on travelling and living overseas see:
