There are course requisites for this subject. See access conditions.
This subject is designed to enhance students' cultural awareness and understanding through first-hand experience of living and studying in a non-English-speaking culture. It provides students with the opportunity to spend one session at an overseas university studying the language and culture of the host country and participating in education subjects which are taught in the English language. Students visit schools in the host country, as well as undertake excursions to places of cultural and historical significance. The number of places available in this subject is determined by the number of overseas students wishing to spend an equivalent session on exchange studying at UTS. If there are more applications for the International major than there are places available, a ballot is held to allocate places. Students undertaking the international major are responsible for meeting their own travel and living expenses for the session abroad. Normal HECS arrangements apply but there are no extra tuition fees. Host institutions include Jonkoping University in Sweden and Haagse Hoogeschool in the Netherlands. The international major takes place in session 5 of the Bachelor of Education program.
