La Trobe’s exchange program allows you to travel abroad and study at the same time for a semester or two at one of our overseas partnered universities.
Student exchange applications for Semester 1, 2024 are now open!
Exchange gives you the opportunity to immerse yourself in another culture by living like a local for several months, you could even spend one semester in one country and a second semester in another. There are few opportunities in life to live abroad so this truly is the opportunity of a lifetime!
La Trobe’s exchange program allows you to:
- Go abroad for a semester or full year
- Choose from over 120 host universities in 33 different countries
- Apply and have access to many grants or scholarships to support you while you’re overseas.
- Get complimentary La Trobe travel insurance
While you go to study at a partner university, one of their students will come and study with us. As a result, you will be exempted from paying additional tuition fees to your host university and you will continue to pay your La Trobe fees as you do now.
Most exchange universities teach in English and you can use your pre-approved subjects to gain credits back into your La Trobe degree when you return.
La Trobe’s exchange program is open to all domestic and international students who are studying either an undergraduate or postgraduate course.
