Once you are enrolled in the LLB or Juris Doctor at the ANU College of Law you may be eligible to spend a semester studying overseas on international exchange.
ANU has an extensive list of international partner universities who offer law courses that can form part of your ANU degree. Partner agreements simplify the exchange process and you will continue to pay the same tuition fees to ANU.
Not all ANU partner institutions offer law courses, and some may only accept (for example) later-year students. Interested students should research their options at partner institutions; this might include checking the Global Programs website, which may contain information on individual partners of special relevance to law applicants
Please note: Exchanges are arranged through the ANU Global Programs office, which is your first port of call. Places are limited and competition is high, so be prepared and don't miss out.
Be sure to visit the ANU Global Programs system to register today. Applications for exchanges are made in the year prior to travel – for Semester 1 these open in March and close in May (of the previous year) and for Semester 2 these open in September and close in November (of the previous year).
