The overseas study will give you a more thorough understanding of current challenges facing the global community, and you will develop outstanding skills as a leader and communicator. This will place you in an exceptional position to pursue a career in fields such as politics and government, the environmental sector, international development, foreign affairs, international relations, trade, defence or with non-government organisations (NGOs).

There's also the opportunity to take an internship in a professional working environment. The combination of academic and on-site learning will equip you with skills demanded in the rapidly shifting global environment, such as creativity, communication, cross-cultural collaboration, critical thinking and teamwork.

It will equip you with sharp analytical abilities and the ability to communicate flexible, imaginative and well-informed disciplinary and interdisciplinary approaches. These together will enhance your capacity to lead social change.

Extend your studies of leadership, culture and globalisation by focusing on communication across cultural borders. By studying one of eight internationally important languages – Chinese, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean or Spanish – you’ll deepen your cross-cultural skills and knowledge. All languages are available for beginners through to those with proficiency. You’ll also study topics such as managing intercultural communication, and the skills you build will enable you to apply your knowledge in real-world contexts.
