New Colombo Mobility Program
The New Colombo Plan Mobility Program (NCP) provides funding to Australian universities and consortia to support Australian undergraduate students to participate in semester-based or short-term study, internships, mentorships, practicums and research in 40 host locations across the Indo-Pacific region.

Online 'Virtual' Projects
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and restrictions on international travel, Australian students are temporarily unable to conduct their programs physically situated in Indo-Pacific locations. Until travel restrictions are lifted and the welfare of New Colombo Plan (NCP) students on programs can be appropriately managed, the Australian Government has proposed to permit online delivery of elements of the NCP. This would include mobility projects and internships, where these virtual study and work-based experiences are supported by strong relationships with Indo-Pacific institutions and private sector organisations.

Western Sydney University provides a resource for program leaders and professional staff who are developing an opportunity for students and provides instruction on how to design and deliver an international project. Find out more.
