An overseas study program gives you the opportunity to experience different cultures, study languages, undertake work placement or internships, make new friends and explore the world while receiving credit toward your degree. It provides a 'total immersion' experience in a variety of study areas and locations. You can choose a program length that suits you, from a 2-week fieldtrip, a short-term summer program to a full semester (or two).
The College of Arts, Law and Education Short Term Programs comprise language and cultural studies programs as well as a range of other programs (delivered in English language) in diverse fields, including Media and Communications, Asian Studies, and Buddhist Philosophy. Many of these programs are supported by Commonwealth Government scholarships such as the New Colombo Plan mobility grants or other UTAS or College funding to offset living and transport costs of studying overseas.
Students can also take advantage of a wide range of Exchange and Outbound Study Abroad programs offered by our many partner institutions across the world. These may be intensive programs over the summer or winter break (e.g. some CIS Australia or AIM overseas programs, or semester-long programs with one of our overseas exchange partners).
You don’t have to be studying in a College of Arts, Law and Education course to take advantage of these opportunities. If your course offers student electives, or Experience and Engagement units, you may be able still be able to participate. To find out more about your eligibility, just check that you meet any prerequisites for the program and consult the program coordinator and/or a Faculty/College Officer of your home Faculty/College.
Students must be 18 years old or over in order to be eligible for any of the overseas study programs.
