International Mobilisation

Student Programs

Overseas experience provides a unique opportunity for students to develop their skills and enrich their learning experience, producing career-ready professionals and responsible global citizens. Through these placements, students gain a distinct perspective and sense of self, enhancing their future potential and ultimately, employability.

AVI provides a highly customisable, faculty-led student mobility service for universities. We work with academic institutions to develop a fit-for-purpose program that ensures students engage in a fully immersive cultural experience and gain academic credit (where applicable), while also providing peace of mind they are supported by robust safety and security mechanisms and experience.

We also have a comprehensive understanding of federal government funding initiatives for the Australian Higher Education sector, such as New Colombo Plan, and can provide support to strengthen your application.

By engaging with local partners, we ensure all programs are culturally appropriate and support existing community initiatives, leading to sustainable development outcomes. Currently, AVI runs student mobility services for universities across the Asia and Pacific region. Through our extensive network of government, corporate, non-government, community-based and civil society partner organisations, AVI is able to meet faculty academic requirements and provide an extraordinary, real world on-the-ground learning experience for students.

Virtual Internship Program

Curated in response to COVID-19, AVI’s Virtual Internship Program (VIP) is designed to accommodate students who have a compulsory international internship or work integrated learning unit to complete, but are unable to travel. AVI links Australian students with trusted international partners to work and learn in their organisations using virtual tools. We ensure students are adequately matched to partners based on academic background and the strategic objectives of the partner organisations and offer training and mentorship to support the student-partner relationship.
