Study at another institution

At UON, you have a variety of options to study abroad – whether that be for a two-week short course or a full academic year – while still being considered a student of UON.

We also acknowledge and understand there may be situations where – whether for academic or personal reasons – you may need to undertake study at another Australian institution.

Our aim is to make these instances of cross-institution study as hassle-free as possible.

How to apply

Current UON students who wish to study courses at another institution

If you are seeking cross institutional credit you will need to provide an academic or other compelling reason for undertaking the courses at another institution. You are advised to discuss your study options and eligibility for cross institutional study with your Program Advisor prior to submitting your application.

There is a $50 fee per course to apply and it is up to you to ensure that the course is consistent with the rules of your degree. Please ensure you upload a copy of your invoice when applying.

If you are eligible to apply please submit your application on-line.

For more information you can view the Credit Transfer and Articulation information within the Program Management Procedure Manual - Coursework.

Planning my program for overseas study

There are a range of opportunities to study overseas during your time at UON, from fortnight-long short courses, through to spending an entire academic year in another country.

Generally speaking, you will need to have completed 60 or 80 units in your program by the commencement of your exchange, which translates to your time overseas starting – at the earliest – in your second year of studies.

You also need to enrol in courses at the host institution that will contribute to your studies here at UON.
