Outbound opportunities and exchange

You can take a semester or a year-long program whilst continuing to pay your fees directly to Charles Sturt University.

Advantages of undertaking an exchange program include:

These include an open perspective on culture, language skills, education, a willingness to learn and displaying independence. These skills are very attractive to future employers.
  • Develop your leadership skills.
  • Life experience. You will come back a different person with whole new perspectives on life.

  • What is an Australian Higher Education Graduate Statement (AHEGS)?

    The Australian Higher Education Graduate Statement (AHEGS) is a Commonwealth initiative which aims to provide a more uniform pattern of information across all Australian universities regarding the learning and achievements of individuals in higher education.

    If you receive academic recognition from Charles Sturt Global for your overseas experience such as going on exchange, participating in a study abroad or short-term program, undertaking workplace learning in another country or conference attendance, this will be reflected on your AHEGS.

If you want to study overseas with an institution that is not one of our partner universities, you can still apply for a semester or year-long study abroad program.

You must have approval from Charles Sturt University to undertake this kind of program.

A successful application will be assessed on how well the subjects offered at the alternative institute fit your current course plan and future study requirements.

Talk to the Learning Abroad and Exchange Office before you lodge an application to the host institution. If successful, you will pay your tuition fees directly to the host institution.
