Application and Selection Process

You will need to register to be considered for the International Exchange Scholarship, and can only do so once you've been accepted into the Western Sydney University Go Global Exchange Program, have been nominated to an overseas exchange partner and have received a formal offer/acceptance of an exchange place at that overseas exchange partner. Further information and the registration link can be found here (opens in a new window).

Selection will be made on the basis of meeting the minimum Grade Point Average of 5 (credit average) and/or equity considerations. Scholarships will be awarded to the top ranking students each semester.


This scholarship may only be granted once to any student.
