Student exchange and study abroad
Don’t wait until you graduate, there is a whole world out there waiting for you now! Student Exchange adds an international dimension to your degree by giving you the opportunity to study at one of our many partner institutions.
Most programs are offered in English, however, some non-English speaking countries may only offer a small range of subjects in English. An exchange to a non-English speaking university is a great opportunity to learn a new language. All units of study taken on exchange MUST be for credit, so essentially you are taking your Curtin semester at another university.
- Gain credit towards your degree
- Build your resume
- Develop self-awareness and a new perspective
- Understand a different culture
- Establish international networks and friends
- Explore job opportunities outside Australia
- Travel while you study
You can choose to study at a university at one of our overseas partners in Asia, Canada, Europe, China, Japan, United Kingdom and the United States of America.
Some of the key partners for Science and Engineering programs are listed below but there are many partners you can consider for student exchange and study abroad:
|University of Calgary||Canada|
|Ecole Centrale Lyon||France|
|Technische Universität Darmstadt||Germany|
|Technische Universität Munchen||Germany|
|Indian Institute of Technology Madras||India|
|Sri Lanka Institute of Information Technology||Sri Lanka|
|Royal Institute of Technology (KTH)||Sweden|
|Delft University of Technology||The Netherlands|
|Colorado School of Mines||USA|
Students who wish to complete a semester abroad at an institution that Curtin does not have a partnership with, can complete a semester of Study Abroad. Credit can still be awarded for the semester abroad provided students complete the unit approval forms prior to completing the studies at the host institution. Curtin students should take a Leave of Absence from their degree studies for the semester abroad.
For more information, students should contact the Study Abroad team via firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Faculty of Science and Engineering run short term mobility programs throughout the year to enable enrolled students to visit our partner universities or complete an international internship program and experience the culture of another country.
Program durations vary in length from two to 12 weeks. Students can join the mailing list if they wish to be notified of new programs as they become available. Join the mailing list.
Participating in a short-term program is great way to experience a different culture and language, and to build personal and professional networks internationally, all while gaining credit towards your Curtin degree.
