This resource is designed to support schools in effective planning, implementation and integration of student overseas learning experiences into school programs. It draws upon the work of schools that have successfully incorporated such experiences into whole-school programs for international education.

Although many of the examples in this resource are drawn from experiences in Asia, the support materials provided in the resource have been selected for their transferability to any in-country context.

Underpinning the resource is the rationale that while student overseas learning experiences represent just one of many international education opportunities for schools, these experiences are invariably life-changing, building students’ capacity to operate effectively as active and informed local and global citizens. Throughout this resource, Victorian principals, teachers and students advocate overseas learning experiences as a school improvement strategy and an investment in the future of young Victorians.

The development of this resource has been managed by the Asia Education Foundation on behalf of the International Education Division, Department of Education – Victorian Government.

The online version provides a rich array of film, urls and downloadable documents. These cannot be accessed in the pdf version: Overseas Learning Experiences for Students (PDF 8.34 Mb).

The full resource can not be displayed on a mobile device.
