Spend 13 nights in Washington DC — the seat of American and global power.

Open to undergraduate and postgraduate students, this exciting new program combines a schedule of teaching at the Georgetown University campus, as well as industry workshops with organisations such as the National Association of Broadcasters, KPMG and the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation.

Learn how to ’bridge the gap’ between the private and public sector at workshops with the American defence industry and government relations representatives of blue-chip companies.

All this plus the opportunity to visit the iconic sites and museums of DC during the cultural tour.

Job Hacks

'Job Hacks' is a new short-term program designed to prepare university students for the workforce through a combination of teaching from top lecturers and workshops with senior executives. Gain real world experience with practical case studies and experiential learning with industry leaders all while studying overseas.

The 'Job Hacks' program uses workplace research to help transform the sometimes overwhelming world of internships, interviews and graduate roles into an exciting world of opportunity. Spend two weeks in Sydney developing the skills necessary to establish a career, building 'Brand Me' and learning how to excel in the workforce. Then put those skills to practical use with two weeks of industry engagements in the United States.
