Study tours

Travel and Gain Global Business Experience

  • Explore - new and exciting cultures
  • Discover - more about yourself both personally and professionally
  • Kick start - your career prospects by gaining an international perspective
  • Develop  - international personal and professional networks

An international study tour provides a group of students with the opportunity to travel overseas and study in a new environment for credit. Study tours are arranged by the Business School and are an excellent way for students to gain an international perspective within their program. The Business School runs study tours throughout the year, they are usually two – three weeks of intensive study organised during semester breaks.  Students will travel with their lecturer on a study tour that includes visits and guest lectures with overseas partner institutions, networking with business and industry field trips, and social and cultural events of interest.

Students do not enrol directly into courses as eligible applicants are required to apply for study tour with a statement and upon successful acceptance into the tour students will be enrolled by the student mobility team. Students will be eligible to participate in a UniSA faculty led study tour if you are in your first study period at UniSA and may not meet the minimum requirements - 18 units for UG students and 9.0 units for PG students.

So what are you waiting for - register your interest to have the time of your life!

2018

Chile - December 2018

On this 15 day study tour students will engage with the government sponsors of Start-up Chile and work with the region’s top Universities with world-ranked entrepreneurship programs (Universidad de Chile and Universidad Adolfo Ibanez), both in Santiago – the heart of “Chilecon Valley”. We will be immersed in two of CORFO (Start-up Chile)’s innovative business accelerators and work with companies at seed and acceleration stages, before visiting two of Santiago’s most notable technology fast-growth companies- Junar and Novelo – and two Santiago based Venture Capital funds.

Why Chile? Chile is an arid region with high economic dependence on agriculture and mining, in the midst of a technology transformation. The parallels of climate, economy and history are compelling for Australia, and a compelling learning experience for Australian students. Assignments will challenge students to compare the economic profile and government (and partnership) support structures for innovation and entrepreneurship in Australia and Chile, and provide observations and recommendations for policy and practice
