Our faculty recently concluded an exciting 11-day visit to Malaysia, Indonesia, and Vietnam, with a focus on recruitment and conversion efforts.

This trip was an important step towards strengthening partnerships, conducting agent training and information sessions, and delivering workshops and lectures to promote our faculty and its programs.

Malaysia: Kuala Lumpur

Our first stop was Kuala Lumpur, where we conducted agent training and information sessions for IDP and JM Education, and held discussions with HELP University and Taylor's University. We also delivered workshops to students and academics from Hin Hua High School and Methodist College KL.

Indonesia: Jakarta

After two jam-packed days in Malaysia, we made our way to Jakarta, where we conducted agent training and information sessions with 22 agents located around the city, and held a meeting with Austrade. While in Indonesia, we also strengthened collaborations with the Faculty of Business and Economics (FEB), Faculty of Administrative Science (FIA), and Faculty of Social and Political Sciences (FISIP) at Universitas Indonesia (UI). We also conducted workshops for students, teachers, and Counsellors of international schools and agents.

Vietnam: Ho Chi Minh City

Our next stop was Ho Chi Minh City, where we conducted agent training and information sessions, co-hosted by the University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City (UEH) - International School of Business (ISB), targeting students and parents. In Ho Chi Minh, we gave presentations about our programs within ABLE to students from Nguyen Thuong Hien High School and AGS Scotch College. We also delivered a workshop, co-hosted by Quality Training Solution (QTS), to an audience including leadership from the Department of Education & Training, principals, vice-principals, and teachers from high schools.

Vietnam: Hanoi

Finally, we ended our trip in Hanoi, where we extended our existing partnership with Vietnam National University (VNU) - School of Business and Hanoi Adelaide School, focusing on new opportunities for collaboration. We also gave a workshop to lecturers at VNU - School of Education.

Overall, our visit to these countries was a successful endeavour, with recruitment and conversion efforts through agent training, information sessions, brand awareness building workshops, and partnerships with esteemed universities and schools. We are excited about the prospects of attracting talented students from these countries to our faculty and fostering global collaborations for academic excellence.
