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

Can I just say a huge thank you. This study tour (adventure) was everything we wanted it to be for our students and for their personal development and growth.  The brief we gave you was complex, wide ranging and required the involvement of many stakeholders (An unfortunate consequence of working in the broad field of environment).  You were able to see this brief through, engage numerous partners and somehow pull all of this together into a highly engaging, and academically challenging programme.  We could not have done this without your amazing work and the network of people you were able to link up for us.  I still struggle to comprehend the amount of work that must have gone on in the background to make this the smooth trip that it was.  From the perspective of Kimberley and myself we were able to focus on the academic issues we wanted our students to experience, knowing that everything else was organised for us. July, 2013
