Overseas study tours and field trip courses

Overseas study tours and field trips are short term courses that allow you to study either a core course, elective unit or intensive course overseas. Intensive overseas courses are usually 2-6 weeks in length and mostly run during semester breaks. They may include multiple stops at multiple destinations, or involve a more immersive experience at just one location.

Our field trips and study tours are diverse and you will have the opportunity to learn in overseas locations like The United Kingdom, Iran, Italy, France, China, Vietnam, Indonesia, Philippines, Cambodia, Gallipoli, London, Paris and more.

Our overseas study tours offer students a unique and hands-on learning experience in their areas of study by interacting with industry experts and developing an understanding of local culture by meeting new people.

Applications are now open for the CASS Study Tour and Field Trip Travel Grant. This grant provides equity funding to facilitate study tours or field trip opportunities for eligible students. Funding is available to assist students who are recipients of government allowance (Youth Allowance, Austudy, Abstudy), have refugee status, or can give proof of financial hardship if not a recipient of government allowance.
