Study Overseas


Studying overseas not only provides life changing opportunities, but it is also an academic and cultural adventure – An adventure that allows you to move across the globe, and continue to undertake your USC academic studies, while fully immersing yourself in another culture.

How it works

The Study Overseas (SO) Program is USC's reciprocal exchange program whereby USC’s SO team nominates successful nominees to an agreed USC partner institution as an exchange student.

USC has over 70 partner institutions around the world! You can choose to study in The Americas, Europe or Asia, while earning credit towards your USC degree.

  • SO Program duration is usually 1 Semester (4 months)
  • You remain enrolled as a USC student, and pay your USC tuition

While overseas you will study:

  • courses that may be credited towards your USC degree
  • the equivalent of 4 USC courses (48 units)
  • courses offered in English*

*Unless you are intending to enrol in USC'S In-Country Language program, in which case please contact your Course Coordinator.
