International Exchange

UTAS Science, Engineering and Technology students can complete part of their degree overseas through formal exchange agreements with universities in the USA, Canada, Europe, UK, Japan and Korea.

These agreements permit UTAS students to study at particular overseas universities, without paying the tuition fees, for either one or two semesters. Students remain enrolled at UTAS as Commonwealth supported students under special enrolment codes, paying the usual student contribution. If students are eligible, they normally are permitted to continue receiving Youth Allowance.

International exchanges are a great opportunity to combine study with travel. You are able to earn credit toward your UTAS degree while studying in an overseas environment. Taking part in an International exchange is not only a way to experience another culture and to make long lasting friendships but it can be a way of enhancing employment prospects, as your education experience will be different to those of other graduates.

For information about International Exchange opportunities, please see the GLOW lounge


There are a number of scholarships available to assist you with your overseas exchange expense. Some are Host University or destination specific.

Please visit Exchange for UTAS students for further information or contact the Exchange Coordinator (student.mobility@utas.edu.au) about specific host university scholarships available for UTAS students. Note that many of these scholarships have deadlines.

Crown Princess Mary Scholarship is offered to all UTAS Australian students who wish to study at the University of Copenhagen. Students must have a Distinction average grade in order to qualify. Please visit Scholarships and Bursaries further information and how to apply.

All domestic students who are successful with their exchange application are eligible to receive a Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology scholarship. For applicants who apply for exchange in semester 2 for exchange in semester 1 the following year will also be considered for a University Foundation Golf Day Scholarship.
