Project Global Citizen

Project Global Citizen Scholars undertake an 5-week blended learning program that radically improves their cultural competency skills for studying, living and working across cultures as a truly global citizen.

  • It creates an understanding of culturally-influenced expectations (the “unwritten rules”) of employers and how to bridge the gaps that could limit your ability to survive and thrive in your new host country.
  • Over an 5-week program, we empower you with practical cross-cultural skills in relation to your academic, social and safety situation.
  • Project Global Citizen is Australia’s first professional development program that focuses exclusively on leveraging culture to optimise your experience in studying, living and working as a truly global citizen.
  • Project Global Citizen graduates are certified with a micro credential they can use in their CVs and LinkedIn profiles.

Developing cultural competency has taught me better networking skills across different sectors and in diverse environments.
