As a Study Abroad or Exchange student, will I receive credit for the units I study at UWA towards my degree at my home university?

It's your responsibility to satisfy your home college or university requirements and understand and fulfil credit transfer requirements. We recommend you discuss this with the Study Abroad Office at your home university first. They will inform you on whether you need to complete specific units to meet your home degree requirements.

As final enrolment is subject to timetabling constraints and unit availability, its recommended approval is obtained for over and above the number of units required to fulfil a full academic load at UWA (a full academic load at UWA is 4 six-point units). This will allow some flexibility to change units if necessary.

Once you have chosen your units and sent them to us through your application or by email, we will seek approvals for you to take them, based on your transcript showing you have met any prerequisites required.

You may request a pre-approved study list prior to arrival as part of the online application process. This selection may be changed after you arrive in Perth by emailing us, or visit your Student Advising Office.
