This subject provides students with the opportunity to develop their intercultural awareness and knowledge of other societies through completion of an intensive course of study at an international UTS partner organisation. It is offered in July and Summer sessions, however the specific programs available may vary. Students participate in classes at UTS before their departure and after their return from overseas to support their learning experience.

The international program includes classroom-based seminars supplemented by a series of local excursions. Through the experience of living and learning abroad, the subject enhances students' intercultural communication skills and understanding of their own and others' cultures and encourages them to apply this knowledge to their future professional lives.
