On the 4th July 2023 INTI International University had the pleasure to host 32 students accompanied by 8 lecturers from Gannan University of Science and Technology for a one week international student exchange study and cultural tour.
During the week the students and lecturers participated in a number of workshops having the opportunity to visit historical and cultural towns in and around the University campus. Some of the workshops conducted for the exchange students included a 3D Study Workshop, Mass Communication Workshop, Business Workshop, Malay Language Workshop, IT Workshop, Traditional Music Instrument Class and a Traditional Dance class which served to expose students not only to learning new skills but also learning within different environments and engaging with their peers. Cultural experiences included a day trip to Malacca – a UNESCO World Heritage City and a one day tour of Kuala Lumpur & Putrajaya the administrative capital of Malaysia.
The student exchange visit to INTI International University proved to be a great success and effectively enhanced and broadened both the lecturers and students’ experience of cross-cultural learning which served to enhance language proficiency and teamwork with fellow peers. This cultural exchange not only allowed participants to engage within different learning environments with their peers but also provided them with multi-racial, multi-ethic and multi-cultural experiences and opportunities to engage with other international students thus enriching their own personal knowledge and cultural experiences. This has provided a strong foundation for further cooperation and collaboration between these two universities.
