Student exchange and short term study

Fully immerse yourself in a new culture by spending a semester or two at one of our 150+ international partner institutions and receive credit towards your QUT degree. Or, take off on a short-term program or bespoke experience, usually for one to four weeks during your mid or end-of-year break.

These programs are generally equivalent to taking an elective so you can get credit towards your degree and see the world at the same time.

Study tours and creative projects

Overseas study tours provide you with an immersive, cultural learning experience overseas. These are usually one to two weeks and are designed to align with your course, incorporating industry visits and workshops.

Creative projects can take place internationally and run over multiple weeks during a semester, working towards an outcome for assessment.

The Creative Industries Faculty runs multiple tours a year, and have visited London, Paris, Cannes, Tokyo, Hong Kong, Seoul, Taiwan, Mumbai, Beijing, Jakarta, Papua New Guinea, East Timor, New York, LA and Edinburgh.

International experiences

Enhance your Creative Industries degree and go global with different types of international experiences including student exchange, short-term programs and international study tours.
