Semester Abroad Australia

Semester Abroad in Australia at the International College of Management, Sydney

Undergraduate studies at the International College of Management, Sydney follow a trimester structure from February to May, May to August, and September to December. During a semester abroad in Australia students take four courses per trimester, which are translated to 30 ECTS total by most European universities. Semester abroad students can choose from the entire course spectrum at ICMS with all specializations and majors (as long as their home university in Europe agrees to their choice of courses). Your curriculum at ICMS prepares you for professional success, blending a thorough understanding of theoretical principles with innovations in hands-on, practical education.

Government funding might help you finance your study abroad adventure in Australia. Additionally, we award study abroad scholarships to European ICMS students regularly and arrange photo and video competitions for our students. You can find further information on ICMS here.

Which Advantages does a Semester Abroad in Australia have for me?

A semester abroad in Australia has many advantages – Australia’s fantastic climate is only one of them: While your friends in Europe are freezing in winter, you can spend the afternoon soaking up the sun at Manly Beach or snorkeling at Shelly Beach just five minutes walking distance from campus.

But apart from this side benefit a semester in Australia certainly has other advantages: Australian universities offer their students state-of-the-art campuses, outstanding professors, and excellent conditions for studying. Most international students especially value the innovative and creative teaching methods as well as practical relevance of the study course contents during their semester abroad in Australia.

A study abroad period in Australia, or “down under”, in the land of kangaroos, koalas and wombats provides the opportunity to stay at a distinguished university abroad for one term and at the same time to enjoy several eventful months in one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Another advantage students spending a semester in Australia have is that courses they took abroad are compatible with the curriculum at their home university. The educational system in Australia has a similar structure to the European system. In both Europe and Australia students are able to specialize early on in their academic career and start with a major. As a result, European students can choose to study abroad in Australia early during their Bachelor studies in order to explore this wonderful continent.

Whereas attaining a study abroad visa for other countries can be a tedious bureaucratic procedure, applying for an Australian study visa is simple and straightforward. On their visa students are eligible to work during their semester abroad for up to 20 hours, and even up to 40 hours (full-time) during term breaks. This way you can make some money in order to support yourself abroad and make some dreams come true, be it a diving excursion to the Great Barrier Reef, a trip to Uluru or even a detour to South Pacific realms.

A semester abroad in Australia has still more to offer: Whether a jeep tour across the Australian outback, hiking in the Blue Mountains, surfing at Manly Beach, or enjoying cultural highlights in front of Sydney’s impressive Opera House – you won’t have time to feel bored during your term at ICMS.

Most Australians are open-minded, very friendly and welcoming, so you won’t have trouble adjusting and will most likely always find somebody ready to help you with anything that might be new and unfamiliar. Assumingly, you will be invited to your first real Australian “Barbie” soon after you’ve arrived in Sydney, or your neighbors ask you to come over to watch a hockey game together. Australians love to get to know people from other parts of the world and to present Australian delicacies and national dishes. Make the most of your semester abroad in Australia and get to know this friendly nation and make friends for life.
