International programs and exchange

We’ve developed overseas placement opportunities and exchange programs designed specifically for students studying education.

Our international programs will provide you with unique skills and experiences including opportunities for international knowledge sharing.

International professional experience

Broaden your skills and improve your attractiveness to employers by undertaking an International Professional Placement.  You’ll experience a new learning environment and teach an international curriculum, in some cases paired with a local pre-service teacher.

We often receive grants to send students on international placement. In recent years we have received funding from the New Colombo Plan and Endeavour Grants, and students have received financial assistance to complete a professional placement in countries such as India, Spain, Malaysia, Nepal and Sweden.

International exchange

Study on exchange at one of the 150 universities we have direct partnerships with, or the 300+ universities participating in the International Student Exchange Partnership (ISEP) network. Popular exchange destinations for education students are Sweden (Umea University and Malmo University), United Kingdom (University of Stirling), and Spain (Universidad de Complutense).
