Studying overseas

The Exchange program is designed for you to undertake their studies at an ANU exchange partner for up to six months and count it towards your LLB (Hons) or JD.  Studying Law overseas as part of your degree can provide personal and academic rewards, add value to your ANU experience and provide opportunities to study areas of law that may not available at ANU.

Exchanges are arranged through ANU Global Programs, and be sure to read the Exchange Frequently Asked Questions before applying.

Applications for exchanges are made in the year prior to travel:

  • Semester 1 - open in March and close in May (of the previous year)
  • Semester 2 - open in September and close in November (of the previous year).

Places are limited and competition is high, so be prepared and don't miss out!

Opportunities for exchange funding in the Asia-Pacific

Employers greatly value students who show initiative and resilience in undertaking exchange studies in our fast-changing, fast-growing Asia-Pacific region.

The New Colombo Plan enables undergrad Australian students to apply for funding to support exchanges and other international opportunities to the Indo-Pacific region. Below, you can listen to David Olsson - former managing partner of leading Sino-Australian firm King & Wood Mallesons, and New Colombo Plan Business Champion, appointed by Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop - talk to Dr Jo Ford about why ANU law students should consider semester exchanges, internships and other experiences in countries of the Indo-Pacific region.

Westpac Asian Exchange Scholarship

The Westpac Asian Exchange Scholarship supports undergraduates eager to contribute to Australia’s success in Asia. Australia will need future leaders connected to those markets, and Asia-literacy will be critical to harness these opportunities in our region.
