    The unit will be offered as an elective available to all courses offered by Faculty of ESTeM. It will positively complement the development of professional graduates. Through a placement in an international professional context, this situated learning enables students to participate in the social and professional community where personal and professional knowledge, confidence and competence can be enhanced. Students will be challenged to make comparisons between the understanding and practices of Australia and the international setting. They will further develop their graduate skill base through exposure through cultural immersion and engagement.
