More than 300 health students travel overseas each year. Studying abroad is an exciting way to expand your horizons, both personally and academically.
We partner with 200 top universities in 43 countries around the world. You can earn credit towards your degree while studying one or two semesters at a top university overseas.
Short-term overseas programs
Not enough time for a full semester of exchange? A short-term overseas program, generally running over two to four weeks, can offer a great alternative.
These programs usually run over the semester breaks (June-July and November-January) and may offer credit towards your degree.
The number of destinations each year is expanding. Recent destinations include Fiji, Japan, Brazil, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India and Vietnam.
'I decided to study nutrition science because I’m interested in sports nutrition, and how fuelling your body correctly can enhance performance. With QUT, I’ve been able to travel to Vietnam and show local school kids how fruit and vegetable consumption plus exercise is important for good health.'

'My placement in Hue, Vietnam, allowed me to develop skills and knowledge that would not otherwise be obtainable through placement in Australia. I was faced with a range of experiences that allowed me to understand the deep connection of location, culture, and history and how these factors influence health care, nutrition, and the way of living. An international placement provided me with an experience like no other.'
