You can satisfy your UWA course requirements while on exchange.
Everything you study on exchange must be credited towards your UWA course. If your UWA Faculty allows, you can complete the following course requirements while on exchange:
1. Look at your outstanding course requirements at UWA.
2. Consult your Allocated Course Advice Office to find out how much flexibility you have with your unit selection. In some cases, you may need to find overseas units with a similar content to the UWA units or you may be able to select units that are not available here at UWA!
3. Use our Student Exchange database to check restrictions and access the host universities' handbooks and view the course details of the units your are interested in.
While on exchange, you must enrol in the 'recommended full load' required at the Host University. Equivalent to a 'full time load' at UWA. Study load varies depending on the contact hours, assessment method and workload required at each individual university.

Whatever the reason, each time you make changes to your unit enrolment overseas you must gain approval from your UWA Allocated Course Advice Office.
