Description

The Westpac Asian Exchange Scholarship supports students who are interested in Asia, and want to actively contribute to Australia's success in Asia in their chosen field.

It provides the opportunity to:

  • study at a UQ exchange partner in Singapore, Japan, China, Hong Kong SAR, South Korea, or Taiwan ROC for up to two semesters 
  • develop global leadership skills by participating in a leadership development program before starting your exchange.

A greater understanding of Asian culture, markets and languages will be vital to build stronger business and cultural connections across the region. Australia will need future leaders connected to those markets, and Asia-literacy will be critical to harness these opportunities in our region.
