Our core curriculum helps students look at the world with empathy and confidence; to listen, take the lead and challenge stereotypes. There is no better place to practice these skills than studying overseas.

We offer the opportunity to study the core curriculum abroad with previous locations including Rome, Beijing, New York or Leeds.

Update on international study activities 

Your health and safety is our top priority and, in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and current travel restrictions, all ACU international study programs are currently suspended.

Virtual learning opportunities are available during this time for both short-term and semester-long experiences. Current students can find more information on the Student Portal.

ACU is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely, and we will continue to review the aforementioned guidance. Please refer to our Coronavirus FAQs for regular updates.
