In this category you will find the most variation in opportunities. So, if you’re unable to find an exchange partner that works for you, want to try doing something completely different to normal courses, or do practical placements or internships, this is the category for you!

Short term programs include things such as summer/winter schools at a non-partner overseas universities, programs from our approved Mobility Experience Providers, internships or work placements at an external organisation overseas, research related work, volunteering programs, and conferences or international competitions.

Programs might be facilitated through an approved Mobility Experience Provider or be something you’ve found independently. Some of our full semester exchange partners offer short term study programs that are separate to short term exchange.

You will need to pay any necessary fees to the host institution or provider and do not need to be enrolled into corresponding UniSA exchange course.

The Mobility Experience Providers (MEPs) listed below have been vetted and approved by the UniSA Study Overseas team. If you choose to take part in a program that is not offered by a UniSA approved MEP, then you will need to provide additional supporting documentation, including a Risk Assessment pertaining to the experience. Your application will then need special approval before it can progress.
