Important notice

In light of the continued risk and uncertainty around travel, all international travel on university business is suspended until further notice, unless otherwise specified. Please see the University’s COVID-19 updates page for full details.

Additionally, UniSA International Travel Grants are also unavailable and may not be reinstated by the time international travel is available again. When planning your future study overseas experience, please budget accordingly. OS-HELP and other Government grants and scholarships may still apply.

Please don’t let COVID-19 put your plans on hold. Use this time to plan for your future. The Study Overseas team remain as passionate as ever about the benefits of studying overseas and are here to assist if you have any questions. Please contact us if you’d like to discuss your future plans.

All students on exchange must gain credit for the equivalent of a full time load while on exchange. This equates to either:

  • A minimum of 13.5 UniSA units, OR
  • A maximum of 18 UniSA units

Each host university calculates course loads and credit differently, so you will need to negotiate with your Program Director to determine how many courses at the host university are equivalent to either 13.5 or 18 UniSA units. Some guidelines are listed below. However, the course equivalency will be at the discretion of the Program Director.

    Course Load / Equivalencies

    Alberta University of the Arts

    UniSA Creative students only

    An average course load is 15 credits per semester. Therefore we recommend that:

    • 18 units at UniSA = 15 credits at AUArts (so, 5 courses of 3 credits each) 
    • 13.5 units at UniSA = 12 credits at AUArts (So, 4 courses of 3 credits each)

     Brock University

    Students are expected to complete 5 courses (2.5 Brock credits/30 ECTS) each semester to be considered full time students.

    One course at Brock= 0.5 Brock credits/6 ECTS.
    2.0 credits is roughly equal to 22.5 ECTS/13.5 UniSA units
    2.5 credits is roughly equal to 30 ECTS/18 UniSA units

     Carleton University

    A semester long course is worth (.5) credits, a year long course is worth (1.0) credits. The recommended full-course load for Undergraduate (first year to fourth year) exchange students is (2.0) credits – maximum (2.5) credits – for a semester. For a full academic year the recommended load is (4.0) or a maximum of (5.0) credits.

    Carleton recommends 4 courses for exchange students per semester, with 5 courses being the full time course load for domestic students. Carleton further advised that the study of 3 courses a semester is also considered full-time.

    Therefore we recommend that:

    • 2.0 credits is equivalent to 18 UniSA units
    • 1.5 credits is equivalent to 13.5 units

    Concordia University

    Most courses are valued at 3 credits each with the exception of intensive courses (usually language courses) that are valued at 6 credits. Courses are approximately 39- 40hours (excluding homework, presentations, projects, mid-term and final exams) over a 13-14 week period.

    To assist with calculating credit equivalency, an undergraduate degree is a total of 90 credits over a 3 year period (therefore, maximum full time is 15 credits per semester). Concordia recommend the minimum course load of 12 credits per semester.

    Therefore we recommend that:

    • 5 courses (@ 3 credits each) is equivalent to 18 UniSA units
    • 4 courses (@ 3 credits each) is equivalent to 13.5 UniSA units

    HEC Montreal
    UniSA Business students only

    A semester consists of 15 weeks. A 3 credit course is 45 contact hours. For each credit, students need to contribute about 30 hours of additional personal work. To be considered a full time student a minimum of 12 credits is required.

    Therefore we recommend that:

    • 5 courses (15 credits) is equivalent to 18 UniSA units
    • 4 courses (12 credits) is equivalent to 13.5 UniSA units

    Laval University
    Faculty of Business Administration
    UniSA Business students only

    Undergraduate students: 5 courses (15 credits) = 30 ECTS. Postgraduate Students: 4 courses (12 credits) maximum.

    Therefore we recommend that:

    • 5 courses (30 ECTS) is equivalent to 18 UniSA units
    • 4 courses is equivalent to 13.5 UniSA units

    Contact hours per courses = 45 hours.
    Credits per course = 3

    Ryerson University
    Architectural Studies not open for exchange

    For a domestic student 4-6 courses is considered full course load on the basis that students pay the same tuition for 4, 5 or 6 courses per semester. Unless it is a full year course, each semester long course is of equivalent value (i.e. 1 credit). Ryerson recommends:

    • Faculty of Communication & Design: for exchange students 4 courses per semester is considered full time.
    • Faculty of Business: for exchange students 4 courses is considered a full time load

    Therefore we recommend that:

    • 5 courses is equivalent to 18 UniSA units
    • 4 courses is equivalent to 13.5 units

    University of Calgary
    Education courses not open for exchange

    Most courses are half credit courses, 3 credit hours. The means that students are in class 3 hours per week for a total of 13 weeks. Each half course usually has a total of 39 hours.

    Calgary recommend that exchange students take no more than four courses but to be considered full-time a student needs to take at least three courses per term. Therefore we recommend that:

    • 4 courses is equivalent to 18 UniSA units
    • 3 courses is equivalent to 13.5 units

    University of Ottawa 
    Education courses not open for exchange

    To be considered a full time student a minimum of 12 credits is required.

    Therefore we recommend that:

    • 5 courses (15 credits) is equivalent to 18 UniSA units
    • 4 courses (12 credits) is equivalent to 13.5 UniSA units

    University of Manitoba

    University of Manitoba. To be considered a full time student a minimum of 12 credits is required.

    Therefore we recommend that:

    • 5 courses (15 credits) is equivalent to 18 UniSA units
    • 4 courses (12 credits) is equivalent to 13.5 UniSA units

    University of Ottawa
    Telfer School of Management

    UniSA Business students only

    Telfer courses are worth 3.0 credits for BCom and 1.5 or 3.0 credits for MBA. To be considered a full time student (BCom) a minimum of 12 credits is required. Therefore we recommend that:

    • 5 courses (15 credits) is equivalent to 18 UniSA units
    • 4 courses (12 credits) is equivalent to 13.5 UniSA units

    University of Victoria 

    There are 2 terms per year, each runs for 13 weeks. Each course is worth 1.5 units. Domestic students normally complete five (1.5 unit) courses per term. Each 1.5 course requires 3 hours of study a week for one term. Laboratory, tutorial and other similar activities, if required, are in addition to the basic three hours a week. A smaller load of four courses is recommended by UVic for exchange students.

    Therefore we recommend that:

    • 4 courses (@ 1.5 units each) is equivalent to 18 UniSA units
    • 3 courses (@ 1.5 units each) is equivalent to 13.5 units

    Courses at US partner universities are generally valued at 3 credits each. Students are required to undertake a minimum of 12 credits per semester, equal to 13.5 UniSA units. 15 credits are equivalent to 18 UniSA units.

    Therefore we recommend that:

    • 15 US credits = 5 US courses (@ 3 credits each) is equivalent to 18 UniSA units
    • 12 US credits = 4 US courses (@ 3 credits each) is equivalent to 13.5 UniSA units

    *Courses at Stetson are generally valued at 4 credits each so 3 courses totalling 12 US credits will be equivalent to 13.5 UniSA units and 4 courses totalling 16 US credits will be equivalent to 18 UniSA units.
