PORT Adelaide – The University of Adelaide is urging its students to explore the world by travelling to countries like Vietnam, where study abroad applications are currently on the rise.
In its latest recruitment drive, the university announced it is asking students in its international programs to travel to Vietnam to apply for jobs and be accepted to study at Pepperdines “International Centre of Excellence”.
The international centre will be located in the Pepperdining campus on the outskirts of the city.
The University said there were “significant opportunities” for students in the international centres to “make a difference” in the world and it would help them “reach their full potential”.
“In order to reach the maximum number of students, the University of Sydney, Adelaide and Pepperdiners programs have now been expanded, making them accessible to a wider range of students across Australia and overseas,” the university said.
“Our programs are designed to allow students to be immersed in the lives of our diverse communities, whilst creating an understanding of what it is like to be a refugee, and the challenges that come with that.”
Students applying to Pepperdins programs will also be asked to complete an online questionnaire to learn more about the experiences of refugees.
“There are some significant opportunities for students to make a difference in the global community and to make an impact on the world, whether it be by applying for a job, learning about the cultural nuances and nuances of a new country or learning about their cultural heritage,” the institute said.
In addition, the institute will provide a “virtual learning experience” for the students.
“The Pepperdiner International Centre of Focus is a space where we have a full range of opportunities for international students to build their international skills and to contribute to the Australian economy through internship, teaching, volunteering and more,” it said.
“The Institute is also seeking students who have an interest in the arts, design, film, music, drama, journalism, or business, with an interest to create an impact.”
Students who complete the online questionnaire will also receive an “Invitation to the Next Level” letter which will “help you explore your options for study abroad opportunities in the future”.
“We are currently looking to provide more opportunities for our students to pursue study abroad options, and to build a deeper understanding of their new destination,” it added.
