Swinburne students are invited to complete an Industry Study Tour to Malaysia (12.5 Credit Point – Elective) where you will get the opportunity to intern with a host organisation. This allows you to develop employability skills and enhance your global mindset. Together with your fellow students, you will gain insight into organisational and institutional relations, employment initiatives; and cultural, environmental and social similarities and differences.
Working as an intern with partner organisations, you will identify challenges, innovate solutions, and seek opportunities to develop long term connections which allow you to strengthen your graduate employment outcomes. This is a life changing participatory, cross cultural, and educational skill sharing program.
