UWA units (the host University) that fit your course when applying to go on exchange or study abroad

I am applying to come on exchange or study abroad to UWA. Where do I find UWA units (subjects or courses) which are available?

You can find unit descriptions in the UWA Handbooks and you can check the current timetable to see the schedule for units. You may wish to read some notes on Unit Selection at UWA or in the FAQ at the bottom of the Student Exchange and Study Abroad at UWA page before selecting units.

When you submit your online application for the Student Exchange or Study Abroad program, you have the opportunity to submit a 'study list' made up of the selection of units you wish to enrol into while you're at UWA. If you meet the prerequisites, you may choose any units which are part of a recognised degree program across any of our schools to add to your study list (with the exception of units in Medicine, Dentistry, postgraduate Psychology and core Law units, which are not available to Exchange/Study Abroad students). The Global Learning Office will forward your study list to the relevant school to seek approval for your units and to check that you meet the University's prerequisites before your arrival. You will also have the opportunity to make changes and seek unit approval from the schools in person during Orientation week.

We strongly recommend you discuss the units you wish to take at UWA with your home university first, as you may need approval from them for the units you select.
