Undergraduate Business and Law students are invited to gain practical work experience in Malaysia as a unit towards their degree.

You will be supported by on-ground staff in Malaysia and Deakin academics who will manage the program and also facilitate site visits, networking opportunities, social activities and free time.
Each project has been designed by Deakin Academic staff to provide sound academic content together with deep engagement between Deakin students, their industry professional and community leaders.

All components have been structured so that the students gain an increased understanding of their host country’s environmental and business cultures.
