Official Acceptance Letter

Most acceptance letters will be sent directly to UQ Abroad approximately eight weeks after the host university application deadline. UQ Abroad will contact you by email as soon as it arrives. If the acceptance letter is sent to you directly, please provide UQ Abroad with a copy as soon as possible.

The acceptance letter usually contains helpful information about pre-arrival, semester dates, orientation, accommodation, health insurance and course timetabling. Your arrival date and the class commencement date will be made available on your host institution's website or in your offer letter. Some partner universities place these details on their website so don't forget to consult their websites regularly.

Enrolment at host university

Most universities will provide you with instructions to advise you how to register for and enrol in your courses. This will commonly be outlined in the acceptance letter, on their website, or emailed to you prior to your departure.

While on exchange, you will remain enrolled at UQ and mySI-net must show that you are enrolled in exchange course codes. See Before you leave for further information.

Housing options

UQ’s official exchange partners are obliged to provide you with assistance to find accommodation.

Accommodation options vary, from on-campus student dormitories to off-campus student accommodation, private housing, or homestays with local families. While some universities will guarantee on-campus accommodation for incoming students, others do not offer accommodation on campus but will provide students with the necessary information to seek their own living arrangements.

While some universities list accommodation options in their application form, the majority of institutions will provide you with a link to their accommodation services once you have been officially accepted. We strongly recommend that you apply for housing well before the deadline indicated.

To help you decide where to live, you may find it useful to read some of the student testimonials relevant to your host university or visit UQ Abroad’s Facebook Group to ask other students about their housing experience.

Please note that your accommodation is not organised by UQ Abroad. Housing is organised directly between you and the host university’s accommodation services.
