This unit is currently run in the Summer semesters (between November and February). Contact hours include two weeks of intensive immersive learning through seminars, day trips and overnight field trips. Students are also expected to undertake independent study one month prior to the date of commencement.
Please see How to apply or enrol? for information on this process.
Students need to have completed their first year of studies (2 semesters) of any Bachelors Degree program.
However, it is possible for students who are in Year 1 (Semester 2) to apply based on projected completion of their second semester prior to unit commencement.
Assessments include short weekly reflective essays, a group presentation and a final essay. For more information, check out the unit guide.
We do not advise enrolling in this unit if you have already enrolled in another summer unit. This is because 100% attendance during the two week immersion period is mandatory (a hurdle) for passing this unit.
Field trips and the exact locations will change every semester. Please contact us for the latest information or attend one of our Briefings!
Students will pay the standard School of Arts and Social Sciences unit fee. There are no additional program fees. Accommodation during overnight field trips and transportation costs are included in these fees.
