More Charles Darwin University students will have the opportunity to improve their language and cross-cultural skills through studies abroad thanks to funding from the Australian Government.

Funding totalling $248,500 will be provided by the Australian Government as part of its 2015 funding round for Global Mobility Programs and will be used to subsidise study options for eligible students to undertake short-term and semester-based study with partner institutions.

These grants provide funding for students under the AsiaBound Grants Program, Endeavour Cheung Kong Student Exchange Program, International Student Exchange Program, and the Short Term Mobility Program.

In 2014 students travelled to Indonesia and China to complete in-country language studies under the AsiaBound program, and to Eastern Indonesia to complete a field intensive program. Students also travelled to Greece as part of the Short Term Mobility Program for in-country language study while others travelled to the USA, Canada and France as international exchange students
