Study Abroad Program (Inbound)

CRICOS Code: 112704U


With an increasingly globalised and multicultural society, universities and institutions around the world are looking for opportunities to provide an international study experience as part of their student course offerings. The Study Abroad Program (Inbound) is a short-term non-award course that allows overseas students to undertake any undergraduate or postgraduate subjects at AIHE (providing prerequisites are met) and receive credit towards their home degree. It is aimed at providing an international study experience in Australia for students currently enrolled in degree courses overseas, or those overseas students otherwise qualified to enrol at these levels.

Students will gain an immersive Australian study experience to develop their intercultural competencies and assist in their professional careers.
