INFORMATION FOR STUDENTS

 

Apply for a Project Global Citizen Scholarship and develop your global employability, focusing on cultural intelligence.

 

Our step-by-step program begins with an immersive workshop, delving into the cross-cultural foundations of global citizenship. You'll transition into the role of a cultural investigator for the remainder of the program, addressing real-world challenges related to academic success, cross-cultural teamwork, social integration, wellbeing, entrepreneurship with a global citizen mindset, and employability in Australia and beyond.

Assessment points before and after the program measure the growth of your cultural competency skills.

You'll also receive a cultural competency risk profile assessment, aiming for a low-risk rating that signals to employers your readiness to adapt in any organisational setting.

Upon successful graduation with a low-risk rating, you'll receive Project Global Citizen certification to bolster your CV and LinkedIn profile, validating your cross-cultural competency for potential employers and entrepreneurs alike.

UNCOVER  'UNWRITTEN RULES' OF GLOBAL EMPLOYABILITY

 

Discover culturally-influenced expectations that might not have been explicitly shared with you before. Project Global Citizen Scholars have found value in understanding these helpful, but sometimes confronting insights, expressing sentiments like "I wish someone had explained this to me when I first arrived in Australia" and realising the importance of learning the "unwritten cultural rules" for both student and professional life when studying, living or working internationally.
