What is a short term study overseas program?

UniSA have a variety of short term options which you can undertake as part of your academic coursework program at UniSA. There are many ways you can study overseas under the ‘short term’ umbrella, see the list below for all the types and definitions.

There are three main types of short term programs, as well as a range of more specific options. The three main types are:

How do the program fees work?

The fees vary under the various types of short term programs, for advice on how this will work for you specifically please speak to the Study Overseas team:

Short Term Exchange

Exchange partner programs that have tuition free places to offer our UniSA students means you will be enrolled in a UniSA course and pay your tuition to UniSA along with any necessary additional program fees to the partner (i.e. program fees cover the cost of accommodation, meals, transport, cultural activities, etc.) or;

Exchange partner programs that do not have tuition free places available for our UniSA students means you will defer all fees upfront to the host institution and you will apply for credit to be applied to your program upon your return and successful completion of the program, similar to short term study.

Study Tours

For specifics on study tours, please talk to the academic unit/staff directly in charge of the tour. In general, you are enrolled in a UniSA course that the study tour counts as credit for, and pay tuition to UniSA. 

Short Term Other (e.g. via an approved Third Party Provider, non-exchange Summer/Winter School)

These programs are recommended by UniSA, however these are at institutions that are not UniSA exchange partners. Application and fees are paid upfront to the provider and credit will be applied to your program upon your return and successful completion of the program and any other requirements.
