University of Tasmania UniGO applications now open

University of Tasmania students have the opportunity to apply for a fully funded cultural immersion experience as part of the UniGO: Global Opportunity program.

Following a highly successful 2024 program pilot, University of Tasmania students are now being invited to apply for the 2025 UniGO program. UniGO is a new 25 credit point elective unit allowing students to explore the connections between place, culture, technology and sustainability, travelling for approximately three weeks over their summer break. In January 2025, UniGO students will travel to either Indonesia, Malaysia or Vietnam on a fully funded study tour, immersing themselves in sustainability projects within a Southeast Asian context. The program has been generously funded by the New Colombo Plan and the University of Tasmania, making the opportunity accessible for students who might not otherwise be able to travel.

In the pilot program, 173 UTAS students embarked on a three-week immersive travel experience on six different route itineraries in Malaysia, Vietnam and Indonesia.

AVI is proud to be the implementing partner in this unique program, playing a role in program design, risk and incident management, student travel preparation, in-country support and program monitoring, learning and evaluation.
