The Exchange program is where a student from a partner university trades places with you and you complete a semester or two at the partner university. The University of Melbourne has 200 exchange partners in 39 countries around the world. Most students are eligible to apply for an exchange place and the program is recommended to all students as a beneficial addition to their Bachelor of Arts.
