At Mater Maria Catholic College, students are offered a number of overseas educational experiences to challenge preconceived notions of how people and places are. On all the tours students are encouraged to raise funds together and work independently to pay for their place and passage. All students are therefore eligible.

Students can elect to practise their language skills in Japan; play rugby or netball in England and Wales; experience the historical, literary and everyday culture of Scotland, England and Italy; immerse themselves in the charitable mission of building houses for the poor and dispossessed in Cambodia.
