About this Unit
Working overseas is demanding and poses unique research challenges as well as risks to personal security and safety. This seven-day intensive subject teaches a range of applied research approaches, field skills, techniques and technologies to prepare students for operating safely overseas. The immersive scenario-based role-play learning is delivered at an off-site location. Drawing on United Nations accredited curriculum, the subject equips students with an appreciation for the major methodological, ethical, legal, logistical and personal challenges they are likely to confront when working ‘in the field.’ The unit is of special relevance to students seeking employment in Government and NGO sectors.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Adequate clothing to work outdoors in the simulated learning environment.
