ORIENTATION PROGRAM

All students participating in Olin semester programs are required to enroll and participate in pre-departure and post-departure coursework. INTL 300A Planning for International Learning is a 0.5 credit mini-B course designed to prepare students for their experience overseas the semester before they actually travel. INTL 300B Applying International Experiences is a 0.5 required mini-A post-departure class that will discuss what students learned while abroad and help students articulate those lessons for employers, graduate schools, etc. Both of these classes will meet approximately 3 times during the semester before and after the study abroad experience.

Upon arrival, our logistics provider The Academic Internship Institute of Australia (AIIA) will meet the delegation at the airport with a bus and take all students to accommodation in Sydney. An orientation program is scheduled during the first week of the program. For more information, see http://www.internaus.com/washu/

PREREQUISITES

The International Internship Programs are open to all Olin juniors and seniors who have completed equivalent of 5 semesters of course work (75 units). BSBA students must have completed all core business subjects (except OSCM 230 and 356). There is a minimum GPA requirement of a 3.0 in your overall course work and a 3.0 in your professional course work.

Completion of Marketing 370, MEC 290 (or equivalent) are specific requirements for any second major or minor.

Unfortunately, due to very strict China-related visa requirements of the Australian government, Chinese nationals (those students holding a Chinese passport and a US visa) are not eligible for this program. Non-US students from other countries may be required to provide proof of English language skills in order to receive a visa.  

Selection is based on maturity, seriousness of purpose, and appropriateness of match between program and applicant. Students on disciplinary probation during program period are not eligible.  You must not only meet the minimum eligibility criteria, but also show the type of intellectual curiosity, personal maturity, academic rationale and social flexibility necessary for a successful study abroad experience.

HEALTH INSURANCE

In addition to your Washington University insurance, the Australian government requires all international students (including study and exchange students) to have health insurance, known as Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). Additional information about OSHC will be discussed after admission. 

HTH INSURANCE

Overseas Programs will enroll all WU-approved study abroad students in a basic accident and sickness plan through HTH Worldwide, a leading provider of international health insurance. This plan should be seen as supplemental to the student’s existing domestic health coverage, not as a replacement.  We do not recommend a reduction or suspension of existing domestic coverage in light of enrollment in HTH insurance. For more information, click here.

HOUSING AND MEALS 

Students will be housed in flats in Sydney arranged by our logistics partner, AIIA. The flats will be fully furnished and include a kitchen. Students will have to cook or purchase their own meals. There is no meal plan.
