Program Description:


University of Adelaide
The University of Adelaide, established in 1874, is among Australia's leading universities.  Studying at the University of Adelaide means being part of a rich tradition of excellence in education and research, with world-class academic staff and a vibrant student life. The University offers over 120 programs of study with numerous course options in each program.  W&M students may choose from the full university curriculum in their course selections.

The tuition exchange agreement between the College of William & Mary and the University of Adelaide allows W&M students to pay their regular tuition to W&M while taking classes at Adelaide. The exchange program is best for VA in-state students. Students not chosen for the exchange program have the option of assisted enrollment. Assisted enrollment requires W&M students to pay tuition to the University of Adelaide. Out-of-state students often find assisted enrollment the best option. All W&M students will pay housing, meals and other fees on site in Adelaide.
