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

I feel I must let you know of the dedicated service and support provided by Teena towards me during my time in Malaysia. Her understanding of the schools and her ability to get quickly to the ‘key’ personnel is wonderful .She also ensures that upon leaving that all security staff know of my return and that all will be smooth in the future. Her professional conversations with the students has also given me the opportunity to progress other matters of which I was unaware .Teena is very loyal and trustworthy and is a real ‘gem ‘.Her work ethic is to be commended. Thank you for allowing her to show me around the schools as it has been insightful and reassuring for when I have done ‘solo’ visits. July, 2013

Andrew Keeghan, an undergraduate with Deakin University spent four weeks interning at Thomas Phillips Advocates and Solicitors in Kuala Lumpur. Andrew arrived in KL following completion of a five week intensive language program in Indonesia, which meant he could continue to practise his Bahasa in Malay – the languages are very similar. The company provided accommodation with other interns and local staff allowing Andrew an immediate immersion in Malaysian culture:

When I sat down half way through last year, I asked myself what I could do in the following months to make myself stand above the rest of my peers as we approached the business end of our degree. As opposed to spending one day a week volunteering at a small suburban firm at home, I decided to cast my eyes further afield and experience something that would push my boundaries. When the opportunity arose to live and work in Kuala Lumpur, I was delighted beyond words. 

Working and living in a new city and in a new cultural environment was exactly what I needed to take me out of my comfort zone and find my limits. There’s something about the challenge of relocating to a foreign land for a month that is both scary and exciting. But I wouldn’t say for a second that it was something I regret. In the space of just four weeks, I’ve been able to learn so much about the legal profession and so much about myself. I’ve come out the other end more certain of who I was and the sort of work I want to do when I graduate. Being able…
