It is offered in July and Summer sessions, however the specific programs and languages available may vary. Programs cater for a range of levels of language proficiency from beginner to intermediate. Students participate in classes at UTS before their departure and after their return from overseas to support their learning experience.
The international program includes classroom-based seminars supplemented by a series of local excursions. Through the experience of living and learning abroad, the subject enhances students' linguistic proficiency, intercultural communication skills and understanding of their own and others' cultures and encourages them to apply this knowledge to their future professional lives.
