Our program consists of a guided onboarding week, focusing on creative industries and will include workshops, company tours and thematic presentations from international leading brands and start-ups. Creative design, fashion and novel marketing approaches are all going to be covered as part of the first week with a splash of Vietnamese language study. This will be followed by full-time internships of 8 weeks in students’ areas of interest. Your students will have the opportunity to gain valuable work experience, developing their employability skills whilst immersing themselves in a rich Vietnamese culture.

[/vc_column_text][vc_toggle title=”Flexible:” color=”orange”]We know that our partners have different goals and requirements for their international mobility. We are flexible to be able to work with International Offices, Academic Staff and other stakeholders to make sure the programme meets your objectives. This means we can ensure you’re getting the information you need for the assignment of credit, or for bespoke programmes we can adjust key elements such as the duration, content and deliverables of the programme[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Engaged:” color=”orange”]We know that even with funding, it’s not always easy to get your students to take advantage of the opportunities on offer, especially when travel is involved at some personal cost. This is why we will support you in every way we can to ensure that students are aware of the opportunities we are providing and manage their expectations. This includes paid marketing, design of promotional materials such as e-flyers and programme videos, online info-sessions about the programme and one-to-one consultation[/vc_toggle][vc_toggle title=”Supportive:” color=”orange”]Where budgets are limited, we are happy to cooperate with you to submit applications for various government-funding opportunities, including Generation UK, Prime Ministers Scholarship for Asia and the New Colombo Plan where eligible. This can be done on a speculative basis, i.e. if the funding application is unsuccessful, there is no obligation to run the programme or pay any fees to Pagoda Projects. Discounts and/or benefits in kind are possible when there is a view to commit a greater number of students to our programme or where funding is established. This helps us better manage our capacity and aligns with our approach of seeking to assist students with financial support wherever available[/vc_toggle][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row full_width=”stretch_row”][vc_column][vc_column_text]
