More information about University of Western Sydney - Study Abroad Add
The University of Western Sydney (UWS) is a research-led, progressive university that is committed to ensuring students are set up for career success when they graduate from UWS. Studying internationally is an investment in yourself - in your professional development and personal growth. You will have some amazing stories to share with your friends and family when you return, but more importantly, you will enhance your career prospects, improve your skills and develop your confidence and independence while enjoying living in another country.
The UWS Study Abroad and Exchange Program attracts many students from North America, South America, Asia and Europe.
A student exchange program is based on an official exchange agreement between two partner universities. If you choose this route, you are required to pay full fees to your home university while studying at UWS.
A study abroad student generally refers to a student who enrols for one or two semesters of study at UWS, pays tuition to UWS and credits their study back to their home institution. Students who fall into this category generally come from universities other than those with which UWS has an official exchange agreement.
Student support services
UWS provides a host of facilities and services to international students on all the campuses.
At UWS, students from different parts of the world are made to feel at home and are provided with complete support to successfully reach their academic goals. Some of the support services offered include the airport reception service, the orientation program and campus safety. International student advisers are located on each campus to assist international students with personal, academic and long-term goals.
The university provides high-quality, safe and affordable accommodation options on all campuses. The UWS Residential Colleges provide on-campus accommodation at Bankstown, Nirimba (Blacktown), Campbelltown, Hawkesbury and Penrith. UWSVillage (Parramatta) offers apartments on the Parramatta campus.
UWS offers study abroad and exchange programs that provide you with the opportunity to pursue one or two semesters of full-time study at UWS in any area of study on offer at UWS.
Exchange programs are session or year-long opportunities available to students who are attending a partner university of UWS.
Study abroad is available if you study at a university that is not a partner of UWS. The following options form part of this offering:
Study abroad plus internship: You can undertake an unpaid internship program as part of your study abroad program. The internship is fully supervised by UWS academic staff and provides valuable industry experience in an organisation based in Western Sydney.
Study abroad plus language tuition: UWS, through its English language partner institution (UWSCollege), offers concurrent English language tuition with enrolment in two to three UWS units. This is primarily for students who do not quite meet UWS English language requirements.
Short courses are designed for students who would prefer to study internationally during the summer or winter break.
