This course provides students with the opportunity to broaden their educational experience through participation in an organised, international activity, such as an archaeological dig, an authorised tour, workshop, master class or a series of lectures from a recognised institute.
Students must obtain approval from their Program Convenor prior to enrolment.
At the end of this course, students will be able to:
* Plan and organise a study within the context of an international experience.
* Demonstrate their gaining of knowledge and insights obtainable only through an overseas study experience
* Speak and write, where relevant, with confidence about overseas sites, artefacts, working procedures, operations, et cetera.
* Use pictorial or technical and journal writing techniques to record and reflect on their overseas study experience.
By travelling overseas to participate in organised tours, digs, lecture series and/or workshops, students will engage in a range of activities related to their professional development in their fields of study. Students will be expected to participate in all aspects of their overseas experience, and they will undertake any academic and professional tasks set for them by their teachers and/or directors on-site, as well as any duties imposed upon them by the course co-ordinator at the University of Newcastle.
