and the flex­i­bil­ity to com­plete their en­tire de­gree here in Malaysia or opt for trans­fer to VU Aus­tralia to com­plete their stud­ies. Stu­dents can also opt for the Stu­dent Ex­change Pro­gramme where they get to com­plete one se­mes­ter in VU Aus­tralia.

Busi­ness stu­dents Tan Kai Lin and Ting Kah Yiaw who re­cently went on the Stu­dent Ex­change Pro­gramme share their ex­pe­ri­ence. “Thanks to the Stu­dent Ex­change Pro­gramme, I had the op­por­tu­nity to study in Mel­bourne. I was ex­cited to be there. It was a new en­vi­ron­ment of di­verse cul­tures and life­style. Peo­ple were friendly and I met so many stu­dents of dif­fer­ent na­tion­al­i­ties and made many new friends. Through Vic­to­ria Univer­sity’s Malaysian As­so­ci­a­tion (VUMA), I met fel­low Malaysians where the se­niors were happy to share their ex­pe­ri­ence, which helped me a lot in adapt­ing to my new en­vi­ron­ment. Over­all, the ex­pe­ri­ence has made me more in­de­pen­dent,” says Kai Lin.

Kah Yiaw said: “I felt so glad and blessed to have been given a chance to go on the Stu­dent Ex­change Pro­gramme to Vic­to­ria Univer­sity, Mel­bourne for my last se­mes­ter. Mel­bourne is in­deed a great place to be, with beau­ti­ful scenery and awe­some peo­ple. I got to know lots of friendly lo­cal peo­ple and new friends of dif­fer­ent na­tion­al­i­ties.

“Apart from a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing of global cul­tures, I also en­joyed the more re­laxed Aussie life­style. This ex­change pro­gramme took me out of my com­fort zone and trained me to be more in­de­pen­dent and con­fi­dent, es­pe­cially deal­ing with the new en­vi­ron­ment and chal­lenges.

“It broad­ened my per­spec­tive and helped me to think ma­turely. I would like to thank Sun­way Univer­sity and Vic­to­ria Univer­sity for grant­ing me this pre­cious life­time ex­pe­ri­ence.”

The in­take for the VU Bach­e­lor of Busi­ness pro­gramme at Sun­way are in Fe­bru­ary and July.

The Stu­dent Ex­change Pro­gramme of­fers the op­por­tu­nity to make new friends as well.
