The regional semester is conducted at the four regional partner universities. Students will be asked to nominate preferences for their course of study in addition to two core compulsory units. Students choose either the:
- Dissertation Pathway: HRTD6909/6911 - Human Rights and Democratisation Dissertation
- Internship Pathway: HRTD6910/6912 - Human Rights and Democratisation Internship
The dissertation pathway offers students the opportunity to undertake supervised research in an area of specialisation pertaining to human rights and democratisation. Each student writes a 15,000 to 18,000 word thesis consisting of an original academic piece of work. The research may incorporate field research undertaken in-country while on their regional semester.
