Undertake a short program, a semester exchange, an international internship – or create your own adventure! There’s an overseas experience to suit everyone.

You’ll get credit towards your degree while you see the world. And wherever you want to go, we’ll help you get there.

Choose your overseas adventure

Whether you want to spend a week or a year overseas, we’ve got you covered.


Short term programs

Get a new perspective on where your degree can take you with our in-country short-term programs. These one to five-week programs let you complete all or part of a subject in your uni break, travelling and learning in a small group. You’ll get hands-on experience in an international setting – and make life-long friends as you share this unique experience. Great for first time travellers!

Explore short-term program opportunities



You can study part of your degree – from a session to a year – overseas when you sign up for an exchange program with one of our 50+ partners around the world. With 30 destination countries to choose from, the world’s your oyster. And on exchange, you’ll continue to pay your fees directly to Charles Sturt – easy as!

Study abroad

Want to study with an institution that is not a current Charles Sturt partner? You can, with our Study Abroad program. Just tell us where you want to go, and we’ll help you make it happen. With Study Abroad, you’ll pay tuition fees to your host institution and not to Charles Sturt University for the duration of your program.
