International opportunities

International opportunities

At ANU Law, you can choose to complete part of your degree overseas by participating in a Global Exchange Program, electing to study abroad, taking custom international law courses, participating in mooting competitions or undertaking an international internship. There may also be external scholarship and award opportunities which can take you overseas.

There are two ways that you can undertake study at another university and apply to have that study count towards your ANU law degree:

  1. Studying elsewhere for credit as part of an approved ANU Global Exchange Program (administered by ANU Global Programs); or
  2. Electing to study abroad (considered internally by the ANU College of Law).

When you study a course at a university other than the ANU, you do not receive a grade for that course. You obtain credit towards the total number of units that you will require in order to fufill your law degree program requirements.

For more information, please refer to the Studying Elsewhere guidelines.


Exchange is an official program run by ANU Global Programs where you spend a semester studying towards your degree overseas at an ANU exchange partner university. Find out more >


Study abroad

Study abroad is where you arrange your own independent overseas study that is independent of ANU Global Programs.

Studying overseas as part of your degree can provide personal and academic rewards, adding value to your ANU experience. Independent study abroad is an option for domestic and international students enrolled in an undergraduate program at ANU.

Choosing your own independent study abroad option could allow you to complete courses overseas and count them towards your ANU degree.

Study abroad is not a formal ANU program and as such students are not enrolled at ANU during their time abroad. Students need to enrol as international fee paying students at their host university and pay international fees directly to their host university. All administrative and academic arrangements need to be made on an individual basis with the ANU College of Law.
