Global Immersion Guarantee
COVID 19 Update
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to significantly impact the health and economies of communities around the world, and to restrict the travel, movement and social interactions of people everywhere.
Due to the travel and entry restrictions imposed by countries and airlines in response to COVID-19, we are delaying the opening of applications for the Global Immersion Guarantee program until further notice.
While a study abroad might seem impossible right now, it’s important to remember that the travel restrictions and health precautions imposed as a result of COVID-19 will not be permanent. We fully anticipate these programs will be able to resume when global health and travel advice safely allow it.
If you are currently in your first year, you will still be eligible to apply for the next Global Immersion Guarantee program.
Reactivation of international study experiences
Monash University is planning a return to student international travel in 2022. GIG sites and programs have been selected because they prioritise curriculum that can be taught and/or approved through Monash in advance, they are in locations where local requirements for visas, quarantine, travel and insurance can more easily managed, and where last minute changes are required, can be more readily managed by Monash so that you continue to receive credit for your studies.
In 2022, you will be able to apply to undertake the GIG program in three locations: Italy, The Pacific Islands and Australia. More information on each of these programs will be available in the coming months.
