The New Colombo Plan is a signature initiative of the Australian Government which aims to increase the number of Australians studying part of their degree in the region to deepen their knowledge and understanding of Asia and build people-to-people ties. The Plan provides Australian students with the opportunity to study at local universities for up to one year, as well as options for students to undertake internships with local businesses as part of their studies. We are seeking registration from interested companies and organisations to provide internship and mentorship opportunities for Australian students in Vietnam. As a registered member of the New Colombo Plan Internship and Mentorship Network, businesses and other host organisations can access a diverse talent pool and support students in obtaining professional experience in the region. Please register here. For more information, please visit the New Colombo Plan Business Engagement site or contact the New Colombo Plan Secretariat on email@example.com.
