Internships in Malaysia

Malaysia makes the perfect internship destination – it’s close, English is widely spoken and the cost of living makes it really affordable. It’s also Australia’s third largest ASEAN trading partner so it’s the perfect destination to begin your journey into the Asian Century!

The capital city Kuala Lumpur (KL) is also the base for The Global Student (TGS), because it provides a safe and friendly environment to engage with this multi-racial, multi-religious and ethnically diverse population. A political democracy, Malaysia is economically stable with good infrastructure and a standard of living not far short of developed nations. KL is an amazing cultural melting pot and internship hosts will leave you understanding why Malaysia is famous for its hospitality!

Through our extensive networks and engagement with professional organisations, TGS has an ever growing database of exciting opportunities for students to gain real-life work experience in an inter-cultural setting. It’s the perfect way to gain an international perspective of a discipline or field of study, while experiencing personal growth through negotiating not only a new work culture, but a whole different way of living.
