    This unit provides an opportunity for students of design or architecture to undertake an overseas study program under the direction of Faculty staff. The type of study program chosen will vary but examples include a university-sponsored structured tour or an invitation for a work placement or internship at an internationally recognised design or architecture practice. Alternatively, the Unit Convener may approve a private study tour. Assessment may include an individual or joint design submission before a jury panel, a formal submission of a previously agreed written or graphic portfolio and/or a presentation to studio. Entry is subject to approval by the Study Abroad office and the Course Convener. Students may be eligible to apply for financial assistance through OS-Help loans (assuming they have obtained at least 24 credit points toward their degree) and Government grants where applicable e.g. the Colombo Plan.
