2014 LA and DC Program participants

2017 LA & Washington DC Placement Program Information Session was held on Thursday, 11 August 2016, 12.00-1.00pm

Offered over the Australian summer break (January to March 2017) the LA and Washington DC Placement Programs offer undergraduates a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study, work and live in one of the most dynamic cities in the world.

Designed for aspiring business leaders, the Placement Programs offer the best possible head start to your career. Combining study in American business and leadership skills, with a professional placement in a leading organisation, this is a not-to-be-missed opportunity for senior students preparing to enter the workforce.

The placement programs are open to students from The University of Western Australia's Faculty of Arts and Business School. This incredible opportunity allows you to:

  • Gain invaluable international experience
  • Learn about the intricacies of American business, politics, and culture
  • Network with business and government leaders
  • Receive credit towards your degree
  • Complement your studies through a professional placement

Participants will complete two units of study (equivalent to 18 credit points) at either the University California’s Los Angeles (Business students) or Washington DC (Arts students) campuses for credit towards their degrees. To complement their studies, participants will also complete a professional placement in a wide range of organisations, including in business, entertainment, government, thinks tanks and NGOs. Participants will receive credit for their internship experience by cross-institutionally enrolling in the University of Sydney’s placement units, which will be facilitated by Sydney academics in LA and DC. In total, participants will receive 18 credit points towards their degrees.
