Course Description

Our semester long exchange program with the University of Queensland (UQ) includes opportunities for traditional BSN students in their third or fourth years of the Nursing major. The exchange takes place in UQ term 2. Term 2 begins in mid-July and ends in December. Students complete a clinically immersive course of study that replaces the curriculum at Penn during the semester abroad.

To begin an application for fall semesters abroad, you must first attend a Penn Abroad Advising session. Advising begins in November of the preceding academic year and applications are generally due early in the spring semester. For SON-specific advice, please contact Prof Sarah Kagan (
