Apply for Credit


Credit refers to the units of study that make up your UON degree program. In order to participate in an academic program overseas, you must arrange a credit transfer for the courses you are going to study, to ensure they count back towards your UON Program.

Academic Short Course:  You can apply for a maximum of 20 UON units of credit depending on the length of the course.

Semester Exchange Program: You need to ensure you have enough credit approved for full‐time study (30 - 40 units) contributing towards your UON degree program.  Please use the UON Credit Equivalence Table to determine how your host institution units align to UON Units. E.g. 3 US credit equals 10 UON units.

To apply for credit, please read the Guidelines carefully before completing the Overseas Study Credit Worksheet. You can find these here. Once completed, please return via email to
