Transfer of Credit:

If you are selected for this virtual student exchange program, you will be required to get partner university courses approved for credit by your UNSW Faculty. This is a condition of participating in the virtual student exchange program. Further information about the course approval process will be sent to you once you have submitted your application.  Information is also available in the Student Exchange Tutorial

Please make sure you research the partner university online courses carefully to find suitable options for your degree.

When researching courses for virtual exchange, keep in mind that elective courses and general education courses do not necessarily need to match specific UNSW courses. This will give you more flexibility and it is also a great opportunity to take an online course at an overseas university that is not available at UNSW! For more information about the course matching process, please visit the Virtual Exchange section of the  Student Exchange Tutorial
