If you choose to participate in a global experience independent of UQ, you would be considered a free mover student.
As a free-mover student, you are not supported by The University of Queensland by any means (including funding, insurance, credit pre-approvals etc.) and are choosing to participate in a global experience without any assistance from UQ. Additionally, as a free mover, you are not eligible to defer the tuitions fees to Australian government FEE-HELP / HECS.
Upon return from the experience, you may be eligible to apply for credit and will need to consult with your School or Faculty regarding this process. Credit transfer for free movers is high risk and is not guaranteed. International students returning to study in their home country should be aware that they may not be eligible to receive any credit for their studies, as credit is granted at the discretion of the Faculty.
