Is a GEP right for me?
There's a huge upside to getting involved in a GEP. Professionally, it's an opportunity to engage in diverse educational settings that challenge you to teach taking into account cultural influences and geographical variations.
Personally it can change your view of the community you live and work in, while expanding your understanding of the world.
Am I eligible to participate?
Students must be enrolled in one of these courses:
- Bachelor of Education (Primary)
- Bachelor of Health and Physical Education
- Bachelor of Arts / Master of Teaching (Secondary)
- Bachelor of Science / Master of Teaching (Secondary)

What will a GEP cost?
Your GEP price includes economy-class airfare, accommodation and on-ground transport. Costs vary by destination and length of placement, which is generally anywhere between three and five weeks in duration.
You may be eligible for a variety of funding programs to help financially support you in undertaking a GEP.
