4 Reasons To Become A Global Student

Passionate About Our Work

At The Global Student we are passionate about providing an exciting and life-changing experience! We understand the need for universities to ensure a genuine academic experience combined with a cultural immersion, in a safe environment. We are looking for motivated students who are up for an adventure, keen to try new things, meet new people and ultimately, gain a competitive advantage in the job market!

Multicultural Understanding

We recognise that different cultures work in different ways, and expectations are often different across cultures. It’s also difficult to know who to trust and it can be costly and time consuming to develop your own program. At the Global Student we have the cultural skills, relationships and experience to provide clear communication across borders and ensure a valid outcome for all involved. We take the guesswork out of finding a host for an individual and endure all the headaches for you while developing your project or study tour!

Adaptable and Innovative

The Global Student recognises that not everyone is ready for an individual placement as a volunteer or intern, or might not have the time to complete one. So we also work with universities to develop group programs for short term project-based internships in host companies, volunteer projects in remote villages and study tours or field trips that supplement the students’ academic program. Through our extensive networks in SE Asia we are able to customise programs to meet the requirements of faculties or schools, and to identify suitable partners for reliable program delivery.

Strategically Positioned

As The Global Student is located centrally in the SE Asian transport hub of Kuala Lumpur, we are well placed to visit potential project sites and hosts organisations across the region, which allows us to minimise risk and keep the costs down! Currently we have programs In Malaysia, Singapore, Cambodia with Vietnam, Thailand and Timor Leste on the way. If you don’t see what you want on our site, please ask!

What People Say About Us

Jan has coordinated the Malaysian Internship Practicum for our groups of 20+  students for the last two years.  Her attention to detail and extensive network of business associates ensured that both programs were a resounding success.  When the unexpected does happen, Jan sets to and solves the issues without fuss. Her personal touch makes the experience unique and rewarding for all concerned.  I look forward to working with Jan for our next program and have no hesitation in recommending her services to others.

For the later year university student, the summer holidays do not necessarily equate to a time of partying, winding down and hitting up the beach. For those of us who have that summer internship lined up, it only means 9am classes in the lecture theatre now being 9am starts in the office, the commutes to the CBD replacing commutes to the campus, with probably the only thing staying the same being the way we order our coffee (to go, thanks!) Fortunately, I can say that whilst the above were certainly not absent to my summer spent, it’s not every intern who can say that as a part of their work they –
  • Celebrated Chinese New Year with a lunch complete with lou-sang and ‘yum sing’-ing
  • Mingled with an ambassadorial ‘Who’s Who’ at the Australia Day reception hosted by the Australia High Commissioner
  • Were sent outstation to a tourist island known as the ‘food paradise’ of South East Asia (for work purposes, of course)
  • And most importantly, experience a new and foreign environment, developing both professionally and personally whilst learning the differences of nasi goreng, nasi kandar and nasi campur!
Looking back, it’s that last point which has definitely been the highlight of my twelve weeks as an intern who was very kindly given the opportunity to do so by the MABC. One internship at ANZ Banking Group, one internship at Wong & Partners, a Christmas, a Chinese New Year and an unusually high number (for this Aussie, at least) of federal and state public holidays ensur…
