Short-term partner programs
Short-term partner programs are offered by Swinburne’s partner organisations. You need to arrange your own application and travel bookings as these programs are not led by Swinburne staff (faculty-led). You may still be eligible for academic credit towards your Swinburne degree if you undertake a short-term partner program.
Apply for a short-term partner program
The application process will depend on the program you are interested in.
Apply for an exchange place
Some winter/summer programs at Swinburne partner universities may be available to students on an exchange basis. If you are nominated for a short-term exchange place, you will not pay tuition fees to the partner university, you will enrol in Swinburne units for the approved academic credit (12.5 - 25 credit points).
Apply for a direct place
If you participate in a direct place, you will pay tuition fees directly to the host organisation. You must find out the costs of the program before applying by contacting the host directly.
The application process column will indicate whether you are making an exchange or direct application. Please note our partner organisation’s timeframes for application closing dates and times.
