Overseas internship: Business, Communications, IT & Computer Science Internship
Swinburne course: Bachelor of Computer Science
Dipesh was awarded a New Colombo Plan Mobility Grant for his virtual internship through Swinburne Abroad.
Dipesh completed his virtual internship with Vietnam-based global joint stock company VTI without even leaving Australia.
My virtual internship was with the global joint stock company VTI in Vietnam. I initially decided to do this internship for work experience in information technology. I was a little nervous at first going into this program, because it was a completely different environment. The people I was interacting with were from a different culture that I knew nothing about.
Gradually, as the internship progressed, I got to learn a lot about the Vietnamese culture and also made some Vietnamese friends. Even though the internship was virtual, I still felt really connected to everyone I was working with.
