Experiencing everyday life of a community in a developing country

The Bachelor of International Development Studies equips students with the knowledge and skills needed to work for organisations that aim to improve the lives of some of the world's poorest people.

A key feature of this course is the third year immersion experience (a four week community-based learning experience), which will expose you to the everyday life of a community in a developing country.

Commencing in mid- April 2015 our students set out on their immersion experience. Read about their adventure below on their blogs. You may also want to read about the immersion experience from the course coordinators who accompany the students on the experience, click here.
