Short courses and internships

Looking for a shorter international experience?

The International Short Course Program provides students with the opportunity to study (or intern) overseas for a shorter period of time – usually 2-8 weeks during our summer or winter semester. Check out some of the amazing opportunities below.

Types of programs:

  • Partner University: A number of UOW’s exchange partner institutions offer short courses/internships 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. 
  • Third Party Partner: UOW works directly with external organisations who provide internship and short course opportunities over UOW's summer or winter sessions. Students are strongly advised to seek advice from their faculty on the likely formal recognition of any program undertaken through an external organisation.

There are no UOW deadlines for short course applications unless a student wishes to be considered for a UOW travel grant. You can find the deadline for winter and summer programs on our Application Deadlines webpage.
