2018 KISS Track 1

Students may select up two courses from the list below. The medium of instruction is English for all courses. This year, we are offering 5 courses that are based on Education 3.0 courses/materials that are different from traditional courses in that the class time will consist of interactive activities and discussions instead of lectures. This year, we have a special course that will be open to all KISS students: a 1-week course (1 credit) K-School course called "Understanding Startups"; an entrepreneurship class that will help students better understand business startups.

The classes will begin in the week of July 2nd, 2018 to end in the week of July 27th, 2018. For more information - Here.

Risk assessment

All programs involve some degree of risk to participants.

Students are therefore advised to undertake their own risk assessment before departure and any participation in these programs is at their own risk.

Before departure

All students should register their travel with UNSW. You should also undertake a risk assessment before heading overseas. For more information see - How to prepare for departure.
