Experience the World

Students in the School of Arts and Sciences can add exciting short-term travel opportunities to their degree. Our Experience the World program offers students unique academic and practical learning experiences, and offers the chance to engage in extraordinary community service activities.

Participation in this program will provide students with additional professional and life skills that will not only enrich their learning experience at university, but will make their degree more marketable and attractive on completion.

  • Overseas Study Tours

    Students of History, Politics and other disciplines can take advantage of Notre Dame’s overseas study tours and count the unit directly towards their degree major or minor.

    Notre Dame’s own lecturers take students to such overseas locations as New York, Spain and Washington for up to four weeks where an intensive study program is conducted regarding the history, politics, language, culture and environment of the city or country being visited. This program is often done in partnership with overseas universities and provides an amazing opportunity to combine study and travel.

    Our Experience the World study tours have been fortunate to receive the support of the Commonwealth’s Short-Term Mobility Program, providing eligible students with scholarships to cover the cost of related travel expenses.

    The University of Notre Dame Australia has received more than $300,000 in Federal Government funding, through the New Colombo Plan, to support student learning and immersion experiences in the Indo-Pacific Region in 2017. This includes three semester-length Study Abroad placements with Notre Dame’s exchange partners in Asia.
