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 Drew has enabled us to develop a range of innovative international programs for our students. She has the unique ability to think like an academic but plan like a logistics manager. Her understanding of the Australian university sector, her local knowledge and high-level contacts mean that she is able to design programs that meet (and often surpass) our expectations. Student surveys and staff feedback reflect this satisfaction. We look forward a most positive and productive future working with Jan Drew of JMD Consulting. November 25, 2012

My first day was a positive experience, where instead of being thrown into the deep end, my mentor took the time to introduce me all the employees and helped me to understand all the different roles in the organisation. I was given an important project which was to develop an education booklet aimed at giving an overview of the education systems across five countries in South East Asia, and how these countries formed educational links with Australian institutions in Victoria. I learnt a lot of things during my time, but the main area I believe that will benefit me for the future has been realising the importance of building and maintaining relationships. I saw this first hand by observing how the Commissioner builds relationships with clients in order to help achieve the desired outcome. I was fortunate to be able to refine my networking skills when I attended the the 2012 Australian Alumni Gala Dinner, where upon I have lined up some possible graduate opportunities when I return to Melbourne. I would like to thank the Victorian Government Business Office, Celia Yeo and Tim Dillion for taking me on board the team for my short time here. I have been warmly welcomed and have gained valuable experience both in the business sense and culturally. These skills and attributes will be vital towards me starting my future career.
