Professional Development

Endeavour Executive Awards provide professional development opportunities for high achievers in business, industry, education or government from participating countries.

This award provides you with the flexibility to design a program that advances both your professional and personal goals. In consultation with your host organisation, the one to four month program may include activities such as a shadowing program, work placement, attendance at a conference, participation in a short course, or peer-to-peer learning.

Student Exchanges

The Australian Government recognises the many enduring benefits of international exchanges undertaken during the years of undergraduate education. To encourage greater student mobility, the Australian Government funds Australian higher education providers to subsidise the costs to students participating in student exchanges which include tuition fee waiver and credit transfer.

Only Australian higher education providers are eligible to apply for funding for international student exchange programmes.

Students (Australian and international) wishing to apply for student subsidies available under these international student exchange programmes should contact the International Office of their institution.

I was honour with this scholarship a few years ago and I highly recommend it!

Research standards in Australia are quite high and with great links with private institutions.

If you have a high-academic profile you should consider it.
