This course consists of an intensive overseas study tour introducing science students to international culture and society and providing an opportunity to visit an overseas partner institution, participate in academic seminars and/or cultural activities. The course is designed to develop students' skills in observation, reflection, induction, and deduction on discipline-specific issues in an international context, develop graduates' knowledge of international affairs, and gain confidence to work in one of a range of international environments. The focus of the student's intellectual attention will be her/his participation in a group activity influencing a scientific-related system and conducted outside of Australia. Students will learn to analyse intercultural experience critically and to develop their ability to communicate and empathise in an international context. As some of the tours are sponsored by specific industry bodies, they may want to be involved in the selection of students. In general, selection will be based on academic record, demonstrated ability to work well in groups and may include involvement in extracurricular activities and alignment to career aspirations.
