*In addition to the visa session, all students will need to attend compulsory pre-departure/academic training sessions. All students are required to attend these sessions and prior travel plans will not be excused.

Please note:

The last two weeks of the DC Placement Program overlaps with the first TWO weeks of Semester 1, 2019 at UWA and 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.
