Pre-requisite: LAC2002

Other requisites

Students will require access to e-mail and have internet access to UConnect for this course.
This course should be completed during the student's last year in the program.


The purpose of this course is to give students the opportunity to experience work/study in the relevant target-country and to formally demonstrate and communicate the knowledge, skills and experiences gained overseas. It will require students to record and to reflect upon their in-country experiences and to communicate insights gained to peers in LAC and related studies upon their return to Australia in the target-language. It is envisaged that a formally recognised in-country experience will enhance students' Post-graduation employment prospects. Students should be aware that the number of students admitted into this course will be restricted and acceptance will be at the discretion of the course examiner.
