Please note that the options listed on this webpage should be used as a guide only. Additional discipline areas may be available. For current information about fields of study, course selection and language proficiency requirements, please check the host university's website.

Restricted Fields of Study:

Students wanting to go on exchange to UW-M through the 'Engineering' faculty must take at least 50% of their courses in the College of Engineering.  Students can take non-engineering courses, but if studying a dual degree, may need to meet the 15 credit requirement for non-Engineering students. 

Exchange students wishing to study within the UW-Madison Business School are not given prority regisration for courses and as a result it can be quite difficult to get into these courses. If you are studying a dual degree and plan to take mostly Business coursework while at UW-Madison, this exchange is not a suitable option.

Insurance:

All students studying at UW-Madison are required to maintain adequate health coverage throughout the duration of their exchange. Information regarding the UW-Madison Student Health Insurance Plan, including costs and benefits, can be found here

Students may be eligible to waive the UW-Madison Student Health Insurance Plan if they have sufficient coverage and meet UW-Madison's minimum requirements for coverage. For more information on how to obtain a waiver, visit the link listed above. Please note that the waiver of the UW-Madison Student Health Insurance Plan is not guaranteed and is subject to UW-Madison's approval. If your current insurance does not meet UW-Madison's minimum requirements for coverage you will be required to purchase UW-Madison's Student Health Insurance Plan.
