Das UNSW Practicum Exchange Program (PEP) is open to
students of all degree programmes, as long as the corresponding
programme is also offered at UNSW.
The only exception is the Department of Architecture (D-ARCH).
1-6 months (an extension to 12 months is possible) for semester papers, Master’s theses or project work
UNSW waives tuition fees, but an admission/registration fee of AUD 330.00 applies. The exchange student continues to pay tuition fees at ETH Zurich.
The research period is independent of the semester schedule.
Status of the exchange student at UNSW: full-time student in a non-award research project (Course 6007).
It is not possible to attend courses in addition to working on the research project or paper/thesis.
For information concerning PEP please see the UNSW website:
Make sure you discuss your intentions with the mobility advisor in your department.
Note that the guidelines and information provided by UNSW apply with regard to the application procedure, no registration via the Student Exchange Office of ETH Zurich is needed. The UNSW application documents must be submitted to UNSW 3 months before the planned start of the project; late applications are subject to a fee.
You will require a supervisor for your research project at both ETH Zurich and UNSW. There is no official limit on the number of places available, but individual faculties/Schools at UNSW may have their own restrictions and it is your responsibility to find a suitable supervisor.
Useful information on finding a supervisor at UNSW may be found at "Finding a Supervisor & Research Area". It is also advisable to visit the websites of the research areas which interest you.
When you contact potential UNSW supervisors we recommend that you enclose a CV, a transcript of records, proof of sufficient knowledge of English and a letter of recommendation from your ETH supervisor.
Important: As soon as you find a supervisor, submit to him/her Part A of the UNSW registration form. The supervisor will fill out Part B and forward Part C to the appropriate offices for further processing.
Please note that there will be no nomination and mobility status from the Student Exchange Office, i.e. students participating in the Practicum Exchange Programme do not count as exchange students for ETH Zurich.
