LocationThe university campus is beautifully situated between the heart of the nation's capital and the beauty of Australian bush land and native wildlife. Students can easily walk to the movie theatre, bowling alley, restaurants, bars, fresh food markets, supermarkets, and a major shopping mall or take a 15 minute bus ride to Canberra's city center (departing every 5minutes!). The city's lively nightlife of pubs, clubs and live music rubs shoulders with national and local arts, culture and politics, and the city comes to life each year during its numerous festivals. Some of Australia's most important political and historical buildings and tourist attractions are located in Canberra. Bush land reserves, lakeshore and cycling/jogging trails are just moments away from the university for those craving the great outdoors and kangaroos are regularly seen on campus!

ProfileThe University of Canberra (UC) is a highly regarded regional university located in Australia's capital city. With a current enrollment of approximately 10,000, UC is a vibrant campus, home to a close-knit community of local, interstate and international students.
Lectures are held in purpose-designed, modern lecture theatres fully equipped with multi-media facilities. For each lecture, students attend a tutorial (small, interactive study group supervised by a tutor) where they discuss the lecture and receive personal assistance from teaching staff.
Student welfare is a priority at UC, with facilities in place to assist students both academically and personally. The Students" Association also provides a wide range of social activities, clubs and societies to help students' involvement in campus life. Study abroad students have a dedicated student advisor in the International Office.
ISEP-Exchange programs allow students to participate in reciprocal exchanges with students at ISEP member institutions worldwide, while paying their home university tuition. Students attending US universities that are ISEP-Exchange members are eligible to apply for these programs at other international ISEP-Exchange member universities. Chances of placement vary by location.
ISEP-Direct programs allow students to enroll directly in a host institution abroad, instead of exchanging places with another student. Chances of placement are typically excellent for qualified applicants and some sites offer special academic programs and excursions. Students attending US universities that are either ISEP-Exchange members or ISEP-Direct members can participate in ISEP-Direct programs abroad.
