  • Exchange partners

    Please see our current exchange partner listing to find out if your institution has an exchange partner agreement in place with us.

    Exchange students remain enrolled with their home institution and continue to pay tuition fees to their home institution. Tuition fees at the University of Adelaide are waived.

    While Exchange students do not incur tuition fees, they still have to pay for their living expenses and Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC).

    In addition, the Australian Government occasionally offers scholarships to Exchange students. Please contact your home institution for more information.
