Study abroad and exchange programs

What is study abroad and exchange?

The University's 'study abroad and exchange' programs provide opportunities for students already enrolled in a university overseas to add to the breadth of their educational experience by coming to FedUni to continue their studies and to count the studies towards their home degree.

Qualified study abroad and exchange students from the University's official exchange institutions, are welcome to enrol in either one or two semester programs in a wide range of academic areas.

The Study Abroad Program at Federation University Australia allows you to experience the adventure and the benefits of student life and travel in Australia along with the opportunity to continue your academic program while being immersed in Australian culture, enrolled in classes with Australian students and undertaking fieldwork and related experiences.

Study Abroad is available for students from most universities around the world.
