Program Description:

I want to attend AU as an Exchange Student for a Semester/Year

If you are interested in coming to Alfred as an Exchange Student from one of our Partner Universities, you will apply through the Office of International Programs. Applications are due by April 15th for the fall semester and October 15th for the spring semester.
 

To apply to come to Alfred as an exchange student:

Step 1 

Find your home university on our lists of Partner/Exchange Universities:

  • Central Academy of Fine Arts - City Design School
  • Ecole Nationale Superieure de Ceramique Industrielle
  • Friedrich-Alexander-Universität (Erlangen-Nürnberg)
  • Hochschule Koblenz
  • Kansai Gaidai University
  • Sydney College of the Arts
  • The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts
  • Universitat Jaume I
  • University for the Creative Arts
  • University of Aarhus
  • University of New South Wales
  • University of Sheffield
  • University of Winchester
  • Wolverhampton University

Step 2

Secure nomination from your home university to participate in the exchange. This is typically an e-mail from the international office on your campus.

Step 3

Complete this online application by clicking "Apply Now" above and completing the checklist:

You will need the following documentation to complete your application:

  • A scanned copy of your passport;
  • An official copy of your academic transcript from your home university;
  • A short essay in English which details your reasons for wanting to study at Alfred University, and the ways in which you think this experience will contribute to your current studies.
  • The e-mail address and contact information for a professor or instructor who has taught you at the university level; you will be asking them to fill out an online reference form that supports you as an exchange candidate.
  • Proof of Funds (typically a bank statement); and
  • Your portfolio (Art & Design students only).
Submit your application online! There will be only one piece of your application that you will need to actually send to us through postal mail - a Signature Verification Form, with a copy of your passport. This allows us to confirm your identity (so that you can do everything else online).

Additional materials may be requested by the specific college or school (AU's College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, College of Professional Studies, the School of Business, the School of Art & Design or the Inamori School of Engineering).
