Study abroad


Our links to China and Malaysia offer increased opportunities to:

  • pursue research with a global impact
  • exchange knowledge across disciplines
  • bring different perspectives to bear on traditional subjects.
The Asia Research Institute, Malaysia has eased my access to numerous institutions. They've helped me build relationships with scholars at other important research centres there, such as the University of Malaya.
