This article outlines an ongoing initiative that was also part of the “Navigating Other Cultures” project at the University of Melbourne. It seeks to address the underrepresentation of science students from this university in international exchange programs. It includes a brief literature review that highlights the intrinsically international nature of science, the need for more internationally competent graduates, and benefits of international experiences for students. Two surveys were designed and administered. The first was intended to gain essential information about the reasons that so few science students choose to undertake international exchange programs. The second asked science faculty staff to provide information about the nature and perceived value of their own international experiences. The findings of both surveys are used to propose future strategies to foster greater participation in international exchanges by science students.
