Global Internships, Volunteering and More
Gain a headstart in your career with practical experience overseas to complement your studies
UNSW schools and faculties offer connections to a variety of opportunities for students including international competitions, conferences and field studies. The UNSW Global Education Office provides support to students wishing to take advantage of these opportunities and is available to discuss any plans you may have.
The Office of the Pro-Vice Chancellor (International) may provide travel scholarships to selected UNSW students wishing to undertake global mobility programs that sit outside the formal semester exchange program. For more information Search the UNSW Scholarships.
You should register with the UNSW Global Education Office and undertake a risk assessment before heading overseas. UNSW does not endorse any third party provider programs and participation is at your own risk. For more information see How to prepare for departure.
Taking advantage of volunteer opportunities abroad provides an international dimension to your skills. These add considerable value to your resume, and enable you to present yourself as a high-value employee with interests and aptitudes beyond your studies.
The Global Education Office supports you if you wish to go on these experiences. We are happy to discuss any plans you may have so do contact our Global Education Advisors.
Some of our 200 global education partner universities offer overseas volunteer opportunities, these are generally advertised on our Global Notices.
