The Global Studies Special Project enables students enrolled in a Global Studies double degree to undertake a major study experience in Australia only in the event that they are unable to study abroad or undertake an international internship (as normally required under the Course Rules) because of continuing international travel bans arising from terrorist attack or natural disaster or because of exceptional continuing personal circumstances such as chronic illness, acute personal/emotional circumstances, hospitalisation, or serious family illness.

The Global Studies Special Project is a flexible program of study that consists of a tailored undergraduate-level Global Studies research project along with either an onshore internship with an approved organisation, or, an onshore community-engaged or work-simulated learning experience in the Australian community. The focus of the unit is to study and reflect on the ways in which Australian policy, people or organisations respond to global and transnational contexts. Students will develop knowledge and skills from the special project that can be applied to their future careers.
