Student and staff exchange. Through the bilateral linkages of its members, CUSAC extends the benefits of studying abroad to a wider group of students across the Commonwealth. As an umbrella organisation, it enables its members to share and access information through networking and benchmarking events as well as electronically. It also administers a bursary programme aimed at assisting student exchanges between member universities.
