Student Programs

Cross-cultural experience provides a unique opportunity for students to develop their skills and enrich their learning experience, producing career-ready professionals and responsible global citizens.

Through international placements, whether in-person or virtual, students gain a distinct perspective and sense of self, while building people-to-people connections and deepening relationships between Australia and partners in the Indo-Pacific region, enhancing their future potential and ultimately, employability.

AVI provides a highly customisable suite of services. From faculty-led student mobility to virtual internships and practitioner-led masterclasses, we work with students and academic institutions to develop a fit-for-purpose program, ensuring students can engage in a fully immersive cross-cultural experience while also gaining academic credit, where applicable.
