University Academic Credit & Funding Opportunities

PE Ventures is proud to work alongside tertiary institutions in Australia and Singapore in order to offer students the best possible integration of our project with their degree.

This not only allows some students to access academic credit, scholarships and grants, but enables you to see how your discipline can be utilised to assist in solving some of the world’s most complex issues.

 

It’s important to note, that all academic credit needs to be assessed case-by-case and approved in the same way.

To understand if you’re eligible to apply for academic credit: please contact your Faculty to understand if the project is eligible for the course credit, contact your Mobility Centre (ask for the Overseas Short Programs team) to register your intention to travel – they can offer great support, and when relevant, the Work Integrated Learning (WIL) team. Three useful points of contact at your university. 

To find out what credit our students have gained previously, please see your university’s logo below. These are not all pre-approved, your university must make this decision based on your study load, electives, project relevance, and credit parameters!
