Nursing: Canada 2020
This two-week study tour will provide ten third year Bachelor of Nursing students the opportunity to participate in and to visit Nursing academic and clinical facilities in Edmonton, Canada. Edmonton is the capital city of Alberta, Canada’s most populous prairie province, and sits on the North Saskatchewan River. Edmonton is known as the “Gateway to the North” because of its ease of connectivity to Canada’s major cities and tourist attractions, such as the Canadian Rockies. It is also colloquially referred to as “Canada’s Festival City” because of the range of festivals held in the city annually.
Students will visit the University of Alberta, and will have the opportunity to participate in academic activities such as lecture, simulation and tutorials with local nursing students to gain an understanding of nursing education in Canada. Students will also have the unique experience of visiting a local Indigenous Health Centre.

Eligibility and Selection Criteria*

This program is designed for Nursing students in their third year of study, enrolled in ‘Nursing in an International Context’. Selections for this program will be made on the basis of your answers to the application questionnaires, your GPA, and your University engagement.

*Meeting eligibility criteria does not guarantee you a place on the tour. Students will be selected by a panel of faculty, academic and school staff.

Those students wishing to apply for OS-HELP must have completed at least 24 units which need to be recorded on their transcripts at the time of application and must have at least 3 units of study to complete on completion of this study tour.

The tour is limited to 10 students. Selection for this tour will be made based on a combination of GPA and responses to the ‘About Me’ questionnaire within the GLAS application.
  • A panel will shortlist applicants based on a combination of GPA and application responses.
  • The Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences will conduct a degree check for each shortlisted student and approve the student for credit. This is an automatic internal process and students do not have to take any action for this to occur.
  • After the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences has completed the degree check, students will be notified of their application outcome by Study Overseas.
  • Students will be required to pay an AU$250 deposit within 14 days of their selection for this program.
