Students at UWA have the opportunity of studying overseas for one or two semesters.

  • University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA
  • University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA
  • North Carolina State University, USA
  • McGill University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada
  • Queens University, Ontario, Canada
  • University of Calgary, Alberta, Canada  
  • University of Glasgow, Scotland
  • University of Sheffield, England 
  • University of Leeds, England
  • Durham University, UK
  • University of Otago, Dunedin, New Zealand
  • University College, Dublin, Ireland 

The School of Indigenous Studies encourages students to consider this opportunity and provides some financial assistance. There are also a number of scholarships available to assist students to make this a reality.
