Enhancing networks, expanding cultural horizons, discovering amazing places and forming lifelong memories, Global Internships provide an opportunity for students to apply the knowledge and practice the skills of their profession in another part of the world, while immersing themselves into a different culture, language, lifestyle and people.

Tanner Noakes | Hong Kong | One of my favourite moments – the boys trying to keep a straight face during a photo (the week prior to arrival in the internship destination).

To celebrate the completion of the Trimester 3, 2018 Global Mobility Business Internship Program, studentswere encouraged toenter theGlobal Internship PhotoCompetition.

More than half of the cohort made submissions, opening a special window for us to share their experience in one of four internship destinations, i.e. China, Hong Kong, Japan or the Republic of Korea.

Entries provided a snap shot collage of colour and cultural diversity, with congratulations to our first place winner, Tanner Noakes; and equal second place winners, Zihao (Henry) Cen and Billie Johnston.

Zihao (Henry) Cen | Hong Kong | Handsome Henry Dragon Back – the first week in Hong Kong.

Tanner’s photo was taken with Alex Byrne and GBS students Enoch Pun and Danny Loneragan in a Hutong street in Beijing (China), the oldest part of the city. Henry’s photo was taken on Dragon’s Back Hike to Shek O on the last day of the AustCham Hong Kong Orientation Program prior to the internship commencing. Billie’s photo (featured) was of fellow Global Interns (Casey Roche, Cara Confessore (and partner), Samantha Johnston and Dominic Patel) in traditional dress at Gyeongbokgung Palace, Hanbok in Seoul,Korea.
