Global engagement

The Faculty of Education and Arts has a global outlook in our partnerships, research collaborations and student exchange programs. We have students from over 40 countries, studying in undergraduate, postgraduate coursework, and Research Higher Degree programs.

Global partnerships

The Faculty has strategic partnerships with a wide range of institutions overseas, having hosted delegations from China, Vietnam, the Philippines, South Africa, and Canada. We also focus on capacity-building projects in developing countries, particularly the Philippines, Vietnam, and in Africa.

Our staff are involved in collaborative research projects across a range of fields and with research partners in many countries.

International study and scholarships

Scholarships and international exchange programs help our students travel and expand their experiences of other cultures first-hand. Many of our students have the opportunity to spend a semester or two on exchange at one of our many overseas partner institutions.
