Returning from Exchange

Welcome back!  There are several things you need to do to finalise your exchange:

Welcome Back Student Exchange tutorial

It is important you complete the tutorial as it covers useful information on transfer of credit, re-enrolment, reverse culture shock, careers and employment.  To access the Welcome Back Student Exchange Tutorial:

  1. Log in to Moodle using your student ID

  2. Enter the enrolment key: GlobalEd for the Welcome Back Tutorial

Transfer of credit

To complete the final steps for your transfer of credit you need:

  1. Academic transcript from the partner university
  2. Signed Transfer of Credit form
  3. Completed Returned Student Questionnaire

Don’t forget to check that your UNSW transcript is updated and that your course exemptions are correct so that you can graduate on time.


Generally you need to complete your online enrolment during the normal re-enrolment period.  If a course you wish to enrol in has pre-requisites that you completed overseas but your credit has not yet been transferred, take your transcript from the partner university to your faculty and discuss the situation with them.

If you are at all unsure about the status of your enrolment, sign on to myUNSW.

Reverse culture shock

Culture shock can go both ways! It’s not unusual to experience culture shock once you’ve returned to Australia.  

If you need some extra support settling back into life at home, read about how we help you at UNSW to discover the services available.
