Overseas exchange

Find out about Victoria University of Wellington’s overseas exchange programme.

Wellington Global Exchange offers you the possibility to broaden your personal, academic and cultural horizons. Study towards your degree for one or two semesters on an exchange overseas and receive a grant of up to $2,000.

The benefits of having an international academic experience as part of your studies are invaluable. It is an opportunity to travel, to learn new languages and study novel academic disciplines while you come into contact with different cultures.

Wellington Global Exchange gives you the chance to complete part of your degree abroad at one of more than 100 prestigious exchange partners worldwide. You can attend an institution overseas and study for credit towards your degree while still paying normal Victoria University of Wellington domestic fees.

Wellington Faculty of Architecture and Design Innovation exchange students may attend over 30 universities throughout Europe (including HfG Schwaebisch Gmuend, ENSNP Blois and University of Eindhoven), Asia (including Korea University and National University of Singapore), North America (including Carnegie Mellon University, University of British Columbia) and Latin America (including University of Brasilia, University of Chile, Pontificia University of Monterrey).

We have one of the highest proportions of students embarking on formal exchanges to these partner institutions through the Wellington Global Exchange programme.

Postgraduate exchange opportunities are available in most areas of study.

Wellington University International administers the Wellington Global Exchange programme.
