Study Abroad Coordinator: Daisy Biddle (d.biddle@neu.edu)

Study Abroad opportunities allow you to live in a new city, enhance your career prospects, provide the opportunity for personal development, experience a different culture and meet new people without interrupting your studies or your career path.

You can spend a semester or a whole year at Flinders University and earn credit towards a degree in your own country. You can start your studies in either the first semester (March to June) or second semester (July to November), although if you are intending to come for a full year we suggest you start in semester one to give yourself a great choice of topics.
