International opportunities

To provide unique experiences and tailor our programs to the interests and goals of our students, the Faculty of Science has opportunities for overseas travel and study built into our degrees.

Want to include an international experience in your degree?


If you're keen to broaden your educational and cultural experiences and earn 10 units towards your degree, enrol in the SCIE3600 International Study Experience elective!

Your international experience may consist of an internship, work experience, volunteering or even an organised study tour or workshop, which will allow you to expand and contextualise your study.

Semester exchange

Want to live and study overseas at one of our partner institutions for either a semester or even a year? A semester exchange may be for you.
