1. SHORT COURSES AT UOW PARTNER UNIVERSITIES 

Short Course Program

A number of UOW’s exchange partner institutions offer short courses over summer or winter.  Short courses at UOW partner institutions are not ‘exchanges’, as students are required to pay fees directly to the host university for the program.

2. UOW FACULTY-LED OVERSEAS PROGRAM

Short Course Faculty Program

Several UOW subjects involve a compulsory overseas component – often a study tour where the whole class travels overseas together. In these cases, students enrol directly in a UOW subject, pay subject fees directly to UOW, and are guided through the short course application process by their UOW subject coordinator/s.

Enquiries about these programs and subjects should be directed to the relevant Faculty.   

3. OVERSEAS INTERNSHIPS AND SHORT COURSES THROUGH EXTERNAL ORGANISATIONS

40K Foundation India

UOW works directly with seven external organisations who provide internship and short course opportunities:

Students choosing to do an internship or program with an organisation not listed above need to undertake their own checks as to the organisation's bona fides. Regardless of whether UOW has a working relationship with an organisation or not, students are strongly advised to seek advice from their faculty on the likely formal recognition of any program undertaken through an external organisation.
