The CISaustralia Internship program is a university wide opportunity for students to undertake a professional placement/internship in a Malaysian based company.
Malaysia provides a unique experience to students from almost all discipline areas. As well as its beaches and holiday destinations it is renowned for its diversity of cultures, well developed infrastructure, investment opportunities and advanced technologies. Its 'Vision 2020' plan shows that the country is committed to becoming a major powerhouse not only in the Asian region, but around the world.
The opportunity for you to gain a diverse experience through an internship placement in Malaysia is incredibly unique. The district has become a melting pot for high achieving professionals from around the world. Not only will you learn about your discipline area, you'll also have the opportunity to experience firsthand the skills required to work in a truly multinational workforce as well as develop your professional networks.
CISaustralia will work with you to customise an internship/work placement to match your particular needs, under guidelines set by your School. Placements will be of a minimum three week duration (preferably 4-5) and must count towards academic recognition in your current CSU degree.
This program is funded by the Australian Government's Colombo Plan Funding through the Department of Education. CSU recognises the support of the Australian Government in providing targeted funds which have subsidised the cost of this opportunity to students.
