Our application process allows you to apply to all four universities at once; you may specify your first choice.

After the application deadline, applicants will be interviewed (by phone or in person) and ranked.

Once our Australian exchange partners notify us how many students will be sent to Buffalo, we'll know how many students may be placed in Australia. If you ranked well during the application process and are flexible enough to attend any of the universities, your chance of going to Australia on exchange is greater.

Placements for study abroad positions available through RMIT University, University of Newcastle, and University of South Australia will be offered after exchange positions have been filled.
