    I recently got an offer, which I accepted, to spend the year studying in France. I originally wanted to go somewhere further afield -- say, Australia. However at the time I didn't think I'd be able to afford it, so I didn't apply.

    Since then I've come into a sizeable amount of money, and would love to use some of it to travel. Would my university let me switch my placement to one of our partner universities in Australia?

    The university in France I got an offer for was supposedly one of the most competitive ones, and even then I'm not sure if they even managed to fill all of the spots.

    I'd rather not say, just for the sake of anonymity. Sorry.

    That's subjective I've travelled all over Europe, but I've never had the opportunity to go further afield.

    Ok, well if it's Science Po (preferably the Paris campus), ASSAS or Dauphine then it would be worth it - otherwise not so much as all the other Universities are more or less equivalent since they don't have a competitive entry. The top business and engineering schools (Grandes Ecoles) in France aren't considered as universities for the most part).

    If it's mostly to immerse yourself in France to learn the language then it doesn't matter as much

    Do you think I'd be allowed to switch to Aus?

    Don't know the context so have no idea whatsoever - the only people who'll be able to answer you are the Uni you're at now
