Undergraduate Exchanges

Undergraduate Exchanges

In addition to being eligible to apply for Asia Pacific Week, each year up to three undergraduate students from ANU and a similar number from IU whose academic interests include areas related to Asia will be selected to participate in a semester-length exchange. Finalists will have access to course work, research facilities, and leading scholars of the region while having the opportunity to live abroad. Students will pay their regular tuition and fees to their home institution and each university has on-campus accommodations available although students are responsible for paying fees associated with housing directly to the host university.

Application Process at ANU

Plan early! Allow at least 10 to 12 months to complete the application process. Advance planning also enables you to explore additional funding opportunities.

You should also work with your academic advisor and explore IU’s web site to ensure your academic interests and needs can be addressed during an exchange program. Useful IU links include:

ANU students interested in studying at IU for a semester should apply for the program via the ANU Student Mobility Program (SMP).
