The application deadline for exchange in SP2 2021 has been extended to 9am Monday 17th August.
The University will review the possibility of whether SP2 2021 exchange participation will proceed by mid-November, and the final decision will be based on the following:
We asked that you do not undertake any financial commitments (i.e. plane flights, accommodation) prior to final decision as the University will not be providing reimbursement on the basis of any cancellation, and the University’s insurance will not be providing compensation as the COVID-19 pandemic is now a “foreseen circumstance”.
We remain positive that 2021 Study Overseas options can still be undertaken, and any updates will be passed on to students.
Application for International Student Exchange Program (Full Study Period)
This form can be used for undergraduate and postgraduate coursework students hoping to take one or two full study periods of exchange.
This form is for University of South Australia students only. Please review the application in full prior to commencing the application as you will not be able to save this form.
How to Complete this Form
On the next page of the application, you will be asked to:
- In order of preference, list the institutions you want to apply to for exchange
- Name three or four courses you're interested in undertaking at your first and second preference. These will not necessarily be your final enrolments.
Before you submit the application, please ensure that you have thoroughly researched your nominated host universities. It's your responsibility to make sure that there are courses you can take at each university you apply for. If necessary, go back and check the exchange partner list for course suitability/restrictions and ensure that relevant courses are offered at your nominated host institutions.
TIP: Make sure you select courses at partner universities that will be offered in the study period/semester that you're planning to go on exchange. For example, UniSA's SP2 is the equivalent of a Spring or Winter semester in the northern hemisphere, while an Autumn/Fall semester equates to UniSA's SP5. If classes have not yet been set for the year you'll be going, look at the classes taught in the same semester of the previous year.
UniSA Study Period 2 (Feb July): applications open 1 March to 1 August.
Applications close 11:59pm on 1 August of the year before you are planning to go on exchange
UniSA Study Period 5 (July Dec): applications open 1 October to 11 January.

Please note: If your exchange application is successful, you will be invited to attend the compulsory Acceptance Workshop. This takes place in late February for SP2, and in late August for SP5. Please ensure you will be in the country and able to attend. Exact dates will be sent to you post application acceptance.
