Planning and support
Maybe you’d love to study overseas but you’re worried about all the things you have to arrange and whether you’ll cope living away from home in a foreign country. Rest assured that even the most experienced traveller isn’t always confident; it’s normal to feel a bit nervous. At least one out of five exchange students has never been overseas before.
You don’t even have to speak the language. All our partner universities offer classes taught in English where you will meet lots of people from across the globe who also don’t speak the local language. If you are keen to learn, some of our partner universities offer introductory language lessons.
If you’re not quite ready for a six-month overseas experience, our short-term study tours (two to four weeks) are a great way to start.
Plan and arrange your overseas study with the help of our friendly staff at Swinburne Abroad. They have a wealth of information and support. Visit during our drop-in times or come to a weekly information session.
- Drop in on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday between 2pm and 4pm to speak to a staff member about your options.
- Or, come to a weekly information session held every Thursday at 1pm (for 30 minutes) in our Swinburne Abroad Office. Learn about going on exchange, a study tour or study abroad.
If you have any questions please contact us.
