Constructing Asia: Governance, institutions & identity

A New Colombo Plan program: 2 January to 31 January 2020


ANU College of Arts and Social Sciences in collaboration with HELP University, Malaysia

This program is an exciting opportunity for CASS Undergraduate students to be exposed to a multidisciplinary study of the dynamics and complexities of contemporary Asia by focusing on the politics, culture and economics of the region. Based at Higher Education Learning Philosophy (HELP) University in Malaysia, students will gain from a historically grounded understanding of Asian societies and the social and economic change in a variety of institutional – local, regional and global – settings. This will be facilitated by local fieldtrips and workplace experience with established Malaysian companies, government agencies and cultural institutions.

To further enhance understanding of how Malaysia operates regionally, students will enjoy a three day side-trip to one of Malaysia’s neighbouring countries.


Funding is available to support six students in 2020, with a grant of $3,000 awarded to each successful applicant to put towards the $5,000 program fee. Flights are in addition to this and are payable by the student.
