Global engagement

Academic staff in the School of Education bring a variety of perspectives, and maintain links with scholars across the globe. Our research groups, while centred in the School of Education, form the hubs of international networks.

Visiting international scholars

Academics in the School of Education welcome visits from international scholars to collaborate on research. The School prioritises visitors whose research aligns with our priorities, and availability is limited. If you are interested in visiting our School, please reach out to one of our academic staff to discuss possibilities or find a researcher below.

DIKTI scholars

The School of Education welcomes applications from Indonesian scholars, both masters and PhD, who meet the eligibility criteria set by the Ministry of Education and Culture – Directorate General of Higher Education (DIKTI). Applications will be considered between 1 January and 30 September each year to allow for appropriate processing time.

To submit an application for the School of Education to host your visit, Indonesian scholars must first seek support for an academic supervisor using the tool below.

DIKTI funding will be required to cover the cost of tuition fees, return flights, accommodation for the duration of the visit, and living costs (e.g. food, daily transport, mobile phone).

For further information on fees, contact the School Executive Officer.

The School will provide a workspace (desk, chair and computer in a shared office), library access, on-campus internet access, and use of photocopiers and printers. We will ensure the academic sponsor meets with the DIKTI scholar once each month for the duration of your stay.

Please note that places are limited and subject to available resources.

We recommend the Temporary Activity Visa (subclass 408) for such visits. For more information, visit the home affairs website
