Global virtual opportunities

International travel is on hold right now, but we've adapted to bring you invaluable virtual global opportunities - without any of the jetlag!

Virtual international experiences recreate much of the in-person international experiences, such as learning about a new culture, immersing yourself in a new language, and connecting with other students and industry around the world. While you may not be able to explore a new city, you can still gain meaningful cultural experiences, and often in a much more flexible way.

Below you will find a range of virtual international opportunities targeted to Business and Law students specifically. The possibilities are almost endless – there are even more choices on our Global Learning Online Page

Why should I do a virtual international experience – can’t I wait for the borders to open? 

  • Obtain extra credit towards your degree which will possibly allow you to graduate sooner. For those with a packed academic schedule or need to balance school with work, virtual experiences are more flexible and allow you to maintain your day-to-day schedule while still getting to build your international network
  • Gain valuable international experience without the jetlag or hassle of relocating
  • It’s accessible! The reality is that, even when the borders are open, international travel isn’t a possibility for everyone. Virtual experiences work around some of these barriers meaning that pausing your commitments around work, family and finances might not be necessary
  • Meet other students from around the world
  • Enhance your cross-cultural and virtual communication skills for the global job market
