This interdisciplinary course is designed for high achieving students who want to combine study and travel and proactively build a global career from the very start of their studies. Students will develop intercultural competencies, transversal skills and gain important skills of analysis, critical thinking and reflection, all of which are essential for effective personal and professional operation in international environments.
The course follows the same unit structure as the existing Bachelor of International Studies (A326) of 6 core units, a choice of a major sequence, second major, minor or elective study options, but requires a higher level of international activity and engagement: students must complete at least 4 credit points of international experience, which is supported through the award of a $3000 scholarship*. Students must maintain a Distinction average and have Course Director approval for the proposed international experience. The extended 4 credit point minimum for the international experience requirement and mandatory completion of an internship and Global Citizenship Program will significantly enhance students’ study experience and help ensure that they are in the strongest possible position to pursue their chosen career path after graduation
