Overseas exchange

Exchange in the Master of Architecture

The School may approve international exchange for qualified students in graduate coursework master degrees.

Exchanges may be for one semester only. Students must apply through Study Abroad. Each student's program must be approved in consultation with the program director of the degree. Exchange is not permitted during the final semester.

No program will be approved that involves the completion of more than 50 percent of the core requirements of the degree on exchange.

Exchange units should be taken as part of the degree, satisfying the requirements that would normally be covered at this university during the same period. Exchange should not be in addition to the degree requirements.

Exchange students are required to enrol in a full-time load at the University of Sydney and will incur the tuition costs associated with that load. No tuition costs will be incurred with the partner university.

Specially designated units of study will be recorded on the transcript. A result of 'SR' for 'Satisfied Requirements' will be recorded by the University against each successfully completed unit. The transcript of the exchange university will be the official detailed record of exactly what was completed during the exchange. Exchange results will not count towards a student's Weighted Average Mark.

For more information please contact Study Abroad.

The exchange units for enrolment at the University of Sydney, to be approved with the program director, shall be selected from the following table.

Unit outlines will be available through Find a unit outline two weeks before the first day of teaching for 1000-level and 5000-level units, or one week before the first day of teaching for all other units.
