Health students: earn course credit in T3 with a fully-funded virtual study tour of Fiji!
Given how the COVID pandemic has shaped and ultimately changed our personal and working lives, now is the perfect time to take stock of your current skills and future career goals as we approach 2022. Do you feel equipped for the new world order where you will need to be adept at working and collaborating online anywhere, at any time? Have you ever dreamed of going on a study tour to somewhere exotic like a Pacific Island but it always seemed out of reach?
Experience Fiji for yourself!
Deakin Health is partnering with Think Pacific, Fiji, to deliver a virtual, interdisciplinary, two-week health study tour to Fiji in Trimester 3 (late January 2022). To take part in this exciting and unique opportunity, you will enrol in the HSH303 Health Practicum unit.
To find out more about this amazing opportunity, watch this four-minute video to check out what the experience will be like!
What’s in it for me?
During this study tour, you’ll participate virtually in cultural immersion workshops and work as part of a small team with a partner organisation in Fiji each day to deliver a real-world health project that could make a real difference.
We have lots of places available and we’re excited to tell you we’ve secured Australian Government New Colombo Plan funding to cover the costs involved for eligible students, so there will be no out-of-pocket expenses for you to participate (this would normally cost $1950 per student!). That’s right: we can fully fund you! So don’t miss out on this opportunity as we might only run this program once.
Register your interest now!
