  • Take the benefits of exchange without the longer-term commitment
  • Programs tailored specifically for your major area of study
  • Add international experience without delaying your graduation
  • Make use of your holidays by travelling and studying, while gaining credit towards your degree
  • Differ your program fee through HECS if studying at a partner university.

Short courses & internships 

Types of programs:

  • Partner University: A number of UOW’s exchange partner institutions offer short courses/internships over summer or winter. Short courses at UOW partner institutions are not ‘exchanges’, as students are required to pay fees directly to the host university for the program
  • Third Party Provider: UOW works directly with several external organisations who provide internship and short course opportunities over UOW's summer or winter sessions.

There are No UOW Deadlines for short course applications unless a student wishes to be considered for a UOW travel grant (Winter: 15th April, Summer: 15th September). Students must apply by the overseas deadline as outlined on the short course information.
