Business study tours and immersion programs

How to apply

Applications for the Future of Business Study Tours and Immersion Programs are a two-part process consisting of an online application followed by an online interview.

You can only participate in one Business School Study Tour or related program during the course of your degree (Study tour/Business practicum/Project-based unit and/or the Self-Sourced Placement Program). You'll only be awarded a second study tour opportunity in exceptional circumstances. You can contact us if you need more information on this.

In addition, you can also participate in a Local Industry Placement Program, International Industry Placement Program or other related program if your degree accommodates you enrolling in more than one program.

If you have exceptional circumstances or require clarification please email business.placements@sydney.edu.au

Financial assistance

If you are unable to do a study tour or immersion program due to financial constraints, the Business School offers a limited number of scholarships that you may apply for.

If you've previously received a scholarship/funding (including Business School scholarship, NCP, Endeavour, VC Global Mobility scholarship) for any Business School work integrated learning unit of study, you will only be awarded a second scholarship/funding in exceptional circumstances. Priority will be given to students participating in their first work integrated learning unit of study.

1. Online application

You will need to lodge your application through Sonia Online by the application deadline. You can find instructions in the Sonia Online application user guide (pdf, 662.4KB)

As part of your application you will be asked to include:

  • a copy of your resume. We recommend that you use this resume template (pdf, 125.8KB) when preparing your resume 
  • a copy of your academic record printed from Sydney Student
  • supporting documents (if you're applying for a scholarship)*
  • an image of your current passport identification page
  • a one-page cover letter addressing your motivation for applying.*

*If you're applying for the Singapore immersion program, this is not required.

Your documents need to be submitted as a single Microsoft Word document, no larger than 12MB.

2. Online interview

Once applications have closed, we will email your University student email account with instructions to complete your industry placement program online interview.*

Online interviews are conducted using Sonru and you will have approximately two days to complete it. 

Before attempting the interview, please keep in mind the following. 

  • You can use a desktop, laptop or mobile device. 
  • You will need good internet connection, a webcam and a microphone.
  • You will have only 1 attempt at completing the online interview in Sonru, so we strongly recommend that you become familiar with the system beforehand and don’t leave your interview to the last minute. If you'd like to practice online interviews, please email business.placements@sydney.edu.au.

Your Future of Business Study Tour and Immersion Programs application is not complete until you have completed step 1 and 2. Late applications will not be accepted.

*If you're applying for the Singapore immersion program, you will need to complete a face to face interview. If shortlisted, you will be contacted with a date for an interview held between 3-5 June.
