Program Description:

Offered by Unbound, and supported by the Australian Government's New Colombo Plan, the Global Challenges (Nepal) program is a unique opportunity to explore this complex country and dive deep into building strong and resilient communities. With partners, the focus of this program explores the built environment – the architecture, design and engineering required to build a strong community, as well as understanding the effect of the recent earthquake. The program then looks to the bigger community and social aspects to forge strong societies, including education, livelihoods and equality. Participating students will become part of this journey of transition in Nepal, and make real connections as they explore the local innovations and programs that are building a brighter future in this remarkable country.

Students are advised to book flights only when Faculty approval has been sought and admission into the program has been confirmed by Unbound. Please note that students will be traveling independently to Nepal. This is not a study tour led by University of Adelaide staff.
