Another international opportunity

There is a unique summer study abroad program open to all students (undergraduate and graduate) from the U.S. and Canadian universities studying in sports management and related areas such as athletic training, kinesiology, coaching and exercise, next summer in Australia called The Australian Sporting Industry.   This very popular short course takes place over 3 weeks in June 2012, and is run in partnership with the GlobaLinks Learning Abroad study abroad organization based in Colorado and the University of Canberra’s National Institute of Sport Studies in Australia.

If you have students who might be looking for an amazing, hands-on international sport experience, please consider sharing this information with them.  A flyer is attached about the program.    Program details and online application can be found at http://www.australearn.org/aussports.  A photo slide show and videos from past participant are available on this page.

The course begins in Melbourne, the sporting capital of Australia, then moves to Canberra the national capital and home to the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) and finishes in Cairns, the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef.  Students attend an intensive sports camp at AIS, undertake a sports-related research project, tour stadiums, attend “footy” games and participate in cultural activities.  Students will receive an official University of Canberra transcript for 6 U.S. university credits – that is TWO courses.

GlobaLinks Learning Abroad (AustraLearn) arranges enrollment into the program, all logistics, housing, airfare, pre-departure and in-country support, and offers a scholarship program up to $1,500 towards program fees.   For questions about the program, please contact Kimberly Tibbetts at ktibbetts@australearn.org.
