An international project assisted by researchers from The University of Western Australia has offered new hope to patients with pancreatic cancer.
Five students from the University’s Federation Business School have been awarded prestigious scholarships from the Federal Government’s New Colombo Plan (NCP).
As part of the Scholarships, the students have recently returned from Singapore, where they had the opportunity to learn more about that nation’s history, culture and economic development.
“In collaboration with Nanyang Institute of Management, the Singapore study tour consisted of classes with Singapore students and visits to industry as part of an Industry comparative analysis study,” Debbie Lord, Lecturer in Management, said.
“The New Colombo Plan study tour was created so Federation Business students can explore the differences between Singapore and Australian business organisations and higher education institutions.
“The scholarships are an initiative to offer the nation’s best and brightest students the opportunity to study in the Asian Region.”
The five FedUni students also visited the National University of Singapore (NUS), one of the leading global and research-intensive universities in the Asia Pacific, as well as Singapore's Marina Barrage, one of the nation’s major water reservoirs. They also visited the Fullerton Hotel chain.
“The study tour has provided students with an enormous amount of insight into how Singapore conducts its business and the differences and similarities between the two countries,” Ms Lord said.
