Successful applicants for specific overseas McCusker Centre for Citizenship programs can enrol in this unit. It involves a student exchange to a centre focused on citizenship at an overseas university or institution. It focuses on bringing a global dimension to the McCusker Centre for Citizenship's vision of fostering caring, connected and socially engaged citizens who actively contribute to the wellbeing of their communities. Opportunities available at partner institutions vary, but may involve:

• undertaking an internship arranged by the host centre
• undertaking coursework offered by the host centre
• contributing to or developing a global citizenship curriculum
• participating in projects or activities of the host centre
Students are able to (1) critically evaluate how the concept of citizenship can be globalised; (2) demonstrate an understanding of global citizenship education; and (3) acquire a deeper understanding of a different culture's practices of citizenship.
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) news or blog article; (2) presentation on an aspect of global citizenship education; and (3) evaluation by host centre supervisor. Further information is available in the unit outline.
