Study InBroad


Study InBroad is a unique study package designed to enable metropolitan students in the third year of their undergraduate degree to broaden their study experience by continuing their degree in Albany for a semester or two. This is available for Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts students enrolled in one of the majors offered in Albany.

The package will include recreational group activities which may include weekend trekking on the Bibbulmun Track, climbing Bluff Knoll, cycling the Munda Biddi trail, a visit to the National Anzac Centre or other exciting Southern coastline activities.

An important and underlying element of the study package is the opportunity to enrol in unique Albany based units. Choose from Research Residency in Albany - Part A, Research Residency in Albany - Part B, or Research Residency in Albany (Science). A key feature of these units is the opportunity to develop industry partnerships and networks through projects working with professionals from government agencies, historical, cultural and environmental groups.
