The exchange programme
ANU is regularly ranked among the best universities in the world and has repeatedly been ranked in the top 20 by The Times Higher Education Supplement (THES) world university rankings.
|Duration:||Students will normally spend one semester at ANU, however applications from students wishing to spend the full academic year at ANU will be considered. It is expected that the exchanges will begin in July of each year, however this date is flexible.|
|Value:||A travel grant is available to provide economy return travel to Australia. In addition, the award covers ANU's essential Overseas Student Health Cover (approximately A$190 per semester) and visa costs. Tuition fees will be waived by ANU; however students will be required to continue to pay the University of Oxford any fees they may be liable for. Students will be responsible for meeting their own accommodation and other living costs.|
On campus accommodation is guaranteed to all incoming exchange students as long as they apply for accommodation by the deadline (15 June 2017).
Students can enrol in multiple academic areas; Medicine is the only field not available to incoming exchange students.
|Fee status:||Home/EU and Overseas|

Students are required to contact a possible supervisor at ANU before submitting their application.
The successful candidate will be required to obtain the approval of their college to study away from Oxford, and, where applicable, must also obtain dispensation from residence from their faculty board. The College is expected to host an incoming ANU student in exchange.
A University of Oxford selection committee will consider all the applications and the nominated candidate(s) will be forwarded to ANU. The final decision on the acceptance of the nominated candidates will be made by ANU.
The successful candidate will be required to submit a report detailing their activities as well as a certificate of attendance at the end of their exchange to prove the length of stay.
