General Program Dates

  • Spring semester – early February to late June


Cost

Costs for study abroad vary program to program and will not be exactly the same as on-campus costs of attendance at Elon.

For cost information for this program, please see the budget sheets:


Scholarships/Travel Grants

Need-based scholarships are available for Elon semester programs through the GEC.  For additional information on scholarships or other funding for study abroad, see the Funding for Study Abroad page.

If you qualify for a travel grant through any of the fellows or scholars programs, see the appropriate program director for more information on how to apply the grant to your study abroad program.  Visit the Deadlines and Events Calendar for travel grant deadlines.


Housing

Students live in on-campus housing.  Students will have their own room but share a flat with six to eight other international students.  Flats have a common area and kitchen.


Applications

Students must complete the online Elon University study abroad application by the published deadline. See the Deadline and Events Calendar for the most up-to-date deadline information.  Applications are generally accepted one semester in advance.

Initial approval is granted by Elon, and final acceptance is granted by Curtin University.  Once approved by the GEC, you must submit an application to Curitin University.  


Orientations

A successful semester abroad is dependent upon adequate preparation.  Students will participate in a series of mandatory orientations during the semester prior to studying abroad.  These orientations will address issues of academic, cultural, logistical, financial, and personal preparation, as well as health and safety.  Failure to participate in the required orientations will result in dismissal from the program.  Any financial losses incurred by this dismissal, including program fees and international airfare, are the student's full responsibility.

View the pre-departure orientation schedule for the semester programs.

Testimonial:
Testimonial:
Australia itself is just an amazing country. The people are so laid back and fun and the country itself is simply breathtaking. The Aboriginal peoples have an incredibly rich history. Furthermore, the weekend trips organized by Gary Hepworth with our program were absolutely incredible and gave me the opportunity to see a lot of Australia that I never would have had the chance to experience.
