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!

Dear Jan,   I hope all is well. It has been almost two weeks since I arrived back in rainy and wet Sydney! I wanted to say a BIG BIG thank you for working so hard in organising and making my experiences in KL one that is memorable and enjoyable. I came to Malaysia blind-sighted not knowing anything, other than knowing a few survival phrases. Your advices and places of recommendations to us during the internship made the transition and experience better and smoother. Thank you so much for the ongoing support you have provided throughout the 8 weeks there. All the day trips, activities, briefings, welcome lunch and farewell dinner – this truly enhanced my experience during my time in Malaysia. I’m glad that I saw the International Internships advertisement in my uni email – I immediately chose Malaysia as the place to intern and spend my summer there. The MABC program was great, being able to work at EBM, meeting great and amazing people like you, Teena, Fay and the other MABC interns made my experiences memorable. After my experiences in Malaysia, I have caught that travel bug – the urge of wanting to see the world more and immersing myself in different cultures and environment. I hope you are able to get some time off to relax for a while. Once again, thank you! and I hope we can keep in contact. Regards, Kevin Truong
