Master of Education & Master of TESOL students can usually undertake study overseas as part of their degree. This can be one subject or for one semester.
The eligibility criteria have recently been amended and principally students must not have a status of “At Risk” in their degree and must be able to get credit for their studies overseas towards their degree. For more details see the Exchange Eligibility website.
Core subjects cannot usually be taken overseas. Students enrolled in the Master of Education and Master of TESOL cannot study the Capstone or an equivalent subject while on an exchange or studying abroad.
Students undertaking a semester-long exchange must be enrolled in a full-time load (37.5 points) or a full load (50 points) and, as such, should course plan to ensure that they have sufficient points available prior to departure.
Students applying to go on exchange must attend a myWorld First Step session held by Stop 1 before submitting their application. Bookings are essential and can be made via the Stop 1 website. Attendance is compulsory.
