Immerse yourself in a high-tech hub with more than 5000 years of culture and history

One of the leading producers of technical goods, the Republic of Korea is both modern and progressive, generating some of the world’s largest and most diversified companies.  A country of contrasts, our Global Interns witness first-hand the resilience of a nation that has transformed into a highly industrialised and internationally competitive economy, while at the same time honouring and preserving a rich history and fascinating past.

Student testimonial

The New Colombo Plan (NCP) Global Mobility Internship has provided me with the opportunity to explore cultural awareness within an international workplace setting.By doing so, I have been able to develop primary cross cultural communicative tactics, whilst learning how to better conform to international workplace ideologies. This internship has positioned me strongly to attain workplace employment upon graduation, as I developed various skill sets pertinent to industry practice in my time with Allive Creative. Additionally, I have been given the chance to employ certain frameworks learnt in a theoretical capacity into a practical context. I would highly recommend this internship to any student interested in working in global business environments. It was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I hope it provides the same experiences for future NCP mobility students.

Industry testimonial

The Chamber had a very positive experience hosting Billie, a Griffith global intern.

Billie is bright, passionate, caring and very capable. Her attitude, personality and work ethic made her a valued member of the AustCham team and we have been delighted to have her here. She will certainly be missed around the office.

Billie was an exceptional intern, one of the best we have had, and a perfect fit for our organisation.

Thanks for the recommendation!
