Intern in one of South East Asia’s fastest growing economies – Kuala Lumpur
Kuala Lumpur (often abbreviated as KL) is the federal capital and most populous city in Malaysia. The city covers an area of 243 square km and has an estimated population of about 1.79 million in 2017. Greater Kuala Lumpur, also known as the Klang Valley, is an urban agglomeration of 7.25 million. It is among the fastest growing metropolitan regions in the country, in terms of population and economy.
With such a vastly growing economy, interns will have the chance to choose from a diverse range of opportunities and get to know what it’s like to work in this exciting region of Asia. Many business operations in Malaysia use English as the primary language, so you will get all the benefits of an international internship without having to learn a completely new language. Another great aspect to this progressive location is the diversity in population. Depending on your placement choice, you could be working with locals, tourists, migrants, expatriates or all of the above!
While in Kuala Lumpur, explore the culture
Smell, taste, touch and see this vibrant region of Malaysia. No international work experience would be complete without the appropriate balance of adventure and discovery. Your CISaustralia experience comes complete with orientation and activities included so that you can get to know the other interns on your program, the area where you will be working and how to get around. You’ll have multiple opportunities to taste authentic cuisine and visit the local landmarks.
CISaustralia allows you to expand your future horizons by securing a professional internship placement and quality international experience, complete with around the clock assistance. We know the value of having global experiences on your CV, which is why we’re dedicated to making sure your experience is a positive one, full of growth and exciting development.
We want you to get the most out of your experience, which is why we provide you with airport pick-up, accommodation and the other logistical details that can become a distraction from the real purpose of your trip. This way, you get comfortable quickly and start enjoying the KL lifestyle, while being able to focus on your customised internship.
The program’s on-site support is made up of a diverse and dynamic team of passionate travellers and professionals who know the local environment and also get where interns are coming from. Having original roots in Australia and experience with multiple Australian Institutions, our on-site team has a sensitive and comprehensive grasp on the needs of Australian students.
