Across-discipline general electives

Across-discipline Study Abroad and Exchange electives
Over the past decade, the faculty has listened to the needs of incoming Study Abroad and Exchange students. The result is range of units of study, each of which is specifically designed for international students from across the academic spectrum, rather than from the disciplines of education and social work. All revolve around a robust academic platform and are supported by real-life experiences. A genuine experience of Australian culture in the Australian environment is central to every Study Abroad unit offered by the faculty. What this means for Study Abroad and Exchange students is that they can now live in and learn about Australia ... and receive academic credit for it. Read more...
