Study Abroad/ Student Exchange Program

What is Study Abroad/ Student Exchange Program?

Study Abroad/ Student Exchange program is a program which will allow you to spend one or two semesters at universities abroad and take courses in a regular semester with credit transfer opportunity. Students are encouraged to study at universities partners all around the world.

What are the differences between a Study Abroad and Student Exchange Program?

Most students who choose to undertake a Student Exchange program will do so on an Exchange-basis, i.e. students study overseas at one of UTM’s many partner universities for one or two semesters. There is, however, also the option of doing a Study Abroad-basis, meaning students study overseas at a non-partner university of their choice. Further differences between the two options are explained below:

Student Exchange Program

  • Study overseas at one of UTM’s many partner universities which students usually entitled for tuition fees waiver depend on the available quotas

Study Abroad program

  • Study overseas at a (non-partner) university of your choice which students need to pay tuition fees to the host university
  • You apply to the host university with the assistance of the UTM International and will continue to pay your tuition fees to UTM
  • Units taken at the host university are credited back toward your undergraduate or postgraduate degree at UTM

Application Requirements and Eligibility

  1. Registered as an active student at Universiti Teknologi Malaysia (UTM).
  2. Must complete at least one-semester study in UTM (one semester) and must NOT be in the last semester of study in UTM. As the first-semester student usually did not have an official transcript, the student is required to provide a supporting letter from the respective faculty.
