Australian exchange students

A student who is undertaking a program of studies under the following conditions: the student is enrolled in a course at the Australian home institution; the Australian home institution will count the program of studies as credit towards that course; the host institution is not an Australian institution; the host institution does not charge tuition fees to the student for the program of studies; there is a formal agreement between the two institutions for the student exchange. An Australian exchange student may be undertaking additional units of study which are extraneous to the program of studies which is the subject of the formal agreement.
