Please note:

University of Western Australia Business School students: The last two weeks of the DC Placement Program overlaps with the first TWO weeks of Semester 1, 2018 at UWA.

University of Sydney Business School students: The last week of the DC Placement Program overlaps with the first week of Semester 1, 2018 at USYD.

The US Studies Centre, Perth USAsia Centre and Business Schools will work with each participant to minimise the impact of this overlap, however, it is the responsibility of each student to catch up on any work missed and no special consideration will apply.
