Mainland Exchange Term Program

Students can only participate in one Exchange Program - either an Overseas Exchange or a Mainland Exchange, but not both. The overall selection criteria for the Mainland Exchange Term Program are broadly similar to the criteria for Overseas Exchanges. The main difference is that NO INTERVIEW is required for eligible applicants for Mainland programs. Your selection and scoring will be based on the individual university’s CGA requirements and the paper applications you submit.

Students in the 4-Year program can study in Mainland in the below semesters for exchange:
