Destinations and placements

Go Global Cambodia student

It was a really good opportunity to work with other health students to gain a better understanding of their role. It was really good practice to how we would all work together in a clinical setting. I also loved getting to learn about a whole new culture, and meet the beautiful people that were a part of the communities.

Hear from our students

On a whole, my Go Global placement has been an unforgettable experience, one of which I will carry with me for the rest of my life. The people I have met, the skills that I have learnt, and the values that have been reinforced within me both as an individual and as a health professional will create great impact on me as I begin my journey as a Speech Pathologist.
