Short term opportunities

Short term international study opportunities are arranged by you. If the Program Director agrees to provide you with at least 4.5 units of credit and you meet the criteria you may be eligible to receive a travel grant towards your expenses. The award of Travel Grants is subject to the discretion of the Deputy Vice Chancellor International and Advancement.

This is open to undergraduate or postgraduate (coursework) students and is usually shorter than a semester exchange. You can view a selection of summer and winter school opportunities.

You must complete and submit an application for credit form  signed by your Program Director on your return. This form is used to transfer credit from your overseas study to count towards your degree.

Study tours

If the Program Director agrees to give you at least 4.5 units of credit and you meet the criteria you may be eligible to receive a travel grant of AUD $1,000 towards expenses.


If you are an undergraduate or postgraduate (coursework) student undertaking an international placement as part of your studies you may also be eligible for a travel grant if you meet the specified criteria.
Please ensure you read the note in the criteria document regarding required forms and insurance.

The Hawke Ambassador Program

The Hawke Ambassador International Volunteer Experience Program differs from traditional international exchange or study abroad programs. You will be based within an international non-government organisation (NGO) in an overseas location and work as a volunteer, rather than undertaking formal study at an overseas university.

This program is offered by the School of Communication, International Studies and Languages and The Hawke Centre and is available to students undertaking their 2nd, 3rd or 4th year in the following programs:

  • Bachelor of Arts (International Studies)
  • Bachelor of Applied Languages and Intercultural Communication
  • Double degree programs with International Studies, including International Business,
    Management, Marketing, Journalism and Social Work and Social Policy

It provides scholarships each year for South Australian postgraduate students studying in the fields of urban innovation and innovative urban planning and development to study in Japan for up to six months.
