This unit allows you to engage in a practical learning experience that is authentic to your chosen field of study and complements your personal and professional development goals. Whether you want to build a more empathetic understanding of diverse communities and cultures or have the opportunity to expand your professional and peer networks by being able to connect with other motivated problem-solvers, change-makers and creatives, there are a range of opportunities available. Options include study tours, global experiential learning programs, volunteering opportunities with community organisations, collaborative projects for clients, and internships.
