Detailed information about this program, including courses, housing, and fees, is available on the program website.

In order to study abroad for credit, you must complete two applications. You will need to both apply to your program for admission (via the program website) and apply to Yale for approval to receive credit.

Program Website Apply for Credit



The academic year in Australia begins in February and ends in November, with a break (June/July) between the first and second semesters. You may have to attend an orientation session prior to the start of classes.


Yale does not grant credit for pre-semester courses.

Direct enrollment vs. study abroad provider

You can choose to either apply directly through the university for admission, or apply through one of the following study abroad providers: Arcadia Global Studies or IFSA.

Applying through a study abroad provider still allows you to directly enroll at the university, but with an additional level of services and support. Because of these additional services, it often costs more to study abroad through a provider than to apply directly through the university. We encourage you to research both options before making a decision. If you have any questions, contact a study abroad adviser.
