Virtual Exchange - Semester 2, 2018 applications now open!

Applications have opened for the Semester 2 2018 Virtual Exchange program! 


The Virtual Exchange Alliance

Did you know that you can take online courses to enrich your educational portfolio? ANU has partnered with eight leading universities around the world to offer online courses as part of a Virtual Exchange experience. There are courses available for both undergraduate and Masters students.

All courses offered involve online engagement with the curriculum. In line with other learning abroad experiences, you'll receive a formal result and grade from your partner university and credit towards your ANU degree on successful completion of the Virtual Exchange.

How to Apply

To apply, first review the list of courses in the attached file to see which course or combination of courses you would like to take to be equivalent to 6 units at ANU. If you can't find an exact combination for 6 units, you can combine courses to total slightly higher than 6 units.

To apply for Virtual Exchange please complete the application form through the Global Programs System. If it is your first time applying for a program through the Global Programs System you will first need to complete a user profile before you apply. As part of your application you will need to:

1. Download the Virtual Exchange Alliance Application College Approval Form, complete the student section and then have your College sign off to approve the credit that you would be entitled to receive towards your degree if your application for Virtual Exchange is successful.

2. Upload your signed Virtual Exchange Alliance College Approval Form in your Global Program System application.

3. Select the courses you have been approved to take by your college from the available drop down menu

How to Enrol

Once your application has been confirmed as successful, you will be enrolled into an exchange shell course relevant to your College, so that we can apply the appropriate credit towards your degree on successful completion of the course(s) and the applicable ANU course tuition fee will be applied to your account.

We will then provide your nomination to the partner institution who will organise your enrolment in their course. They will contact you through your ANU email address to let you know how the enrolment process works.

Applications close July 30 - don't miss out!
