Study Abroad

USC’s Study Abroad program is a short semester-based program, allowing you the flexibility to study three or four courses (36 or 48 units) over one semester.

In this program you will:

  • Experience a great option for high school leavers who want to study abroad without committing to a degree, or want to briefly study abroad, while earning credit towards a home degree
  • Be provided with life-changing opportunities, but also an academic and cultural adventure – allowing you to move overseas, continue studying, while fully experiencing Australian culture
  • Be located in the sunny state of Queensland on Australia’s east coast. USC is only a short drive north of the state’s capital, Brisbane

This program is only available to international students.
