Within social work education there is increasing interest in ensuring that the professional curriculum includes an 'internationalised' dimension. Strategies for enacting this goal include facilitating international faculty and student exchange. This paper describes a strategy developed as part of a partnership between two social work departments, located in Australia and India. The strategy involves the convening of collaboratively organised conferences, where social work students on exchange are actively involved in the organisation and implementation of the conference. The benefits and challenges of this strategy are discussed, with a particular emphasis on the facilitation of a student community where scholarly development and intercultural learning are promoted.
