Overseas study opportunities
Take a history class standing amidst the ruins of Rome, dust off ancient artifacts on an archaeological dig in Isreal or meet young people in Fiji to gain a sociologist’s understanding of youth culture in the Pacific region. Regardless of what you’re studying, there’s an overseas opportunity awaiting you.
A new suite of foundation units in the Bachelor of Arts uses the world around us to teach fundamental skills such as problem solving, how to build effective collaboration, researching and critical thinking.
Channel your love of learning into a higher degree research project that will make a difference to your work and the community. You’ll be able to benefit from the expertise of an associate supervisor from the organisation/industry that will directly benefit from your research, and have access to the range of ACU HDR scholarships.
Our graduates learn to effect meaningful change in society by delving into contemporary challenges that shape our lives including social justice issues, environmental sustainability, human rights, and intercultural awareness.
“I was one of six representatives of ACU to the Victorian Parliamentary internship where I developed a research report on the state of rural health in Shepparton. Working with Suzanna Sheed (Independent MP for Shepparton), I interviewed local doctors, members of the primary health network and representatives from rural health universities to create a report that was submitted to a senate inquiry. This was a needed report that had real world impact.”
