Students currently on exchange

If you are a Swinburne student currently overseas on exchange, there are some important things to remember.


You should have registered your travel plans on the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade’s Smart Traveller website before leaving Australia. If you have forgotten to do so, jump on now.

You should have submitted your completed the Swinburne Study Abroad and Exchange Insurance Form to Swinburne Abroad Tracking System.

Confirming your subjects

If you have arrived at your exchange university and found that the units that have been approved on your study plan are not available, or you need to change your units for some other reason, you must get a new study plan signed off by your Swinburne course coordinator. Please ensure that you are still completing the equivalent to a minimum full-time load as per the Credit Equivalence Table.

Once your units have been approved by your course coordinator, please email an updated version of your approved study plan to
