Adam - 2018

The Antai Global Summer School experience opened my eyes to global business and foreign culture. Australia, despite its multiculturalism, is somewhat "hidden" from the rest of the world. Participation in academic, cultural and language sessions as well as company visits, gave me a deeper understanding of China's role in the global economy, and an insight into their culture and people - which is vastly different from Australia. Understanding and appreciating difference, therefore, was my key learning.

Harriet - 2018

It truly was, I believe, a good reflection of the work place environment and provided the opportunity to navigate cultural differences.

Kaveisha Saba - 2018

I chose this experience because it was related to my degree and I also got the insight of China and the advantages and disadvantages of working there in future. I studied various courses in this experience and a few of them were digital marketing and cross cultural communication. I found it relevant to my degree and my favourite aspect of studying abroad was a classroom full of diversified students and having different opinions on different aspects.
