FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQ)


How do I apply to go on exchange?

You apply through the International Office of your home university. The staff there will assess your eligibility for the program and contact the relevant AEN or UN Secretariat with your nomination, which once finalised will be sent to the AEN or UN partner for the next stage of the application - once nominated you will be required to complete the exchange application form for the university you wish to attend.

 

How many universities can I select?

You should select three university preferences. If, for some reason, your chosen universities are not available to you, the network will contact you requesting further preferences.

 

When are the application deadlines?

For AEN students going to Europe: 

Once you are officially nominated by your home university and the AEN Secretariat, the next application deadlines to the partner are: in April (for a start in August/September) and in September (for a start in January).

For UN students coming to Australia:

Where can I find information on what courses are available?

The best place to look for course information is the website of the university you wish to study at. In addition, the Australian-European Network has an Information Sheet for each UN member university - please check the relevant webpage on our website for links to these Information Sheets. If you need your courses to be in English, then please refer to the 'Courses taught in English' section on each of the member university webpages. Finally, course information can also be found through the Utrecht Network website.
