Across-discipline general electives

The Sydney School of Education and Social Work has developed a series of practical electives designed specifically to meet the demands of modern students from all faculties and professions. The electives are based on the key common principles of relevancy, a robust academic platform, engaging delivery, and expert and experienced teachers. More information is available by clicking on the heading above or using the menu on the left of this page.


Across-discipline Study Abroad and Exchange electives

Over the past decade, the school 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 exclusively 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 is central to every Study Abroad unit offered by the school. 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.
