Law: The majority of Law courses are taught full-year and places are very limited for exchange students. There are single-semester Law courses specically made avialable for Incoming Study Abroad (ISA) students though. As you will not be able to enrol in a full-time load of Law courses at Leeds, you should also select courses from other study areas in your dual degree.
You are not recommended to study only Electronic and Electrical Engineering or only Mechanical Engineering, only Geography or only Modern Language and Cultures at Leeds as the majority of these courses are taught full-year (Semesters 1&2) not suitable for single-semester exchange students.
Places on the following courses are in high demand and will fill up very quickly:
Psychology has strict restrictions: students who plan to enrol in less than 50% of their credits in Psychology are limited to elective courses only (electives are called "Discovery Modules" at Leeds, identified by "d" in the course catalogue).

For students on exchange from September to January: even if you finish your studies at Leeds in January, Leeds cannot produce your official transcript until July in the following year. Provisional exam results will be emailed to UQ in late February in the following year and official transcripts will be posted to UQ in August in the following year for credit transfer purposes. ***If you go on exchange in your FINAL YEAR, this would delay your UQ graduation. ***
