Global Citizenship Exchange

Do you want to make a difference globally?

You can explore active citizenship on a global scale, study and gain credit towards your qualification through the Global Citizenship Exchange Program.

The McCusker Centre for Citizenship has partnered with Ustinov College at Durham University to create this opportunity for community-minded students to explore community issues and make a difference internationally, while gaining academic credit.

The opportunity is:

  • Open to both undergraduate and post graduate students
  • Shorter than average international exchange programs, running from 4 to 12 weeks commencing from the Summer Break (November 2017 to February 2018)
  • Eligible for travel bursaries of up to $1,500

The successful applicant will:

  • Develop a global citizenship education curriculum, as part of an internship
  • Undertake coursework, if desired
  • Participate in other projects and activities of the host centres

Global Citizenship Forum - Otago July 2018

UWA is part of the Matariki Network of Universities (MNU) – a network of seven universities ‘partnering for a better world’. The McCusker Centre for Citizenship proudly supports this work through our different programs and promotion of active citizenship in the community.

As part of the MNU Global Citizenship Programme, there will be a 4-day forum next year in Otago, New Zealand which will focus on the theme of Community Engagement.

The Global Citizenship Forum will give students, like you, a space to explore a variety of different global citizenship activities in a supportive, engaging environment.

To find out more and to apply, email Dr Chantal Bourgalt Du Coudray - chantal.bourgalt@uwa.edu.au.

Closing date for applications is 9 March 2018
