Insider Tips for a Thriving Study Abroad Adventure!


Through a reciprocal agreement between Taylor’s University and partner universities abroad, students have the opportunity to spend a semester at a host institution. The Taylor’s University Student Exchange and Mobility Programme allows students to study at over 200 prestigious universities worldwide without paying foreign tuition fees. Instead, students only pay local tuition fees for the semester abroad. Additionally, students can transfer credits back to their home institution and receive a partial transcript from the host institution.


The Student Exchange Programme (SEP) Sharing Session facilitated by the collaboration between the School of Media and Communication (SOMAC) and Global Mobility Office (GMO), provided valuable insights and inspiration for students interested in pursuing overseas studies. Chaired by Mr. Kok Jia Wern, Programme Director for Bachelor of Mass Communication (Hons) (Digital Media & Production) and Bachelor of Mass Communication (Hons) (Broadcasting), School of Media and Communication, the session featured several SOMAC students who shared their enriching experiences from semester exchanges in Denmark, the United Kingdom, South Korea, and China.

The invited students captivated the audience with lively accounts of their memorable experiences abroad, sparking the interest of their juniors. Fiona Lim, a final year student from the Bachelor of Mass Communication (Hons) in Advertising and Brand Management, shared an amusing anecdote about her dormitory experience at Hanyang University in South Korea, likening her living space to a "Smurf House." She also encouraged her fellow students to seize the opportunity to acquire new skills and experiences beyond academics during their time abroad.


After the invited students' presentations on their experiences abroad, Ms. Hor Suet Foong, Assistant Manager from the Global Mobility Office, shared important information and addressed frequently asked questions regarding the SEP application process for upcoming semesters. Her insights and guidance helped students in preparing and planning for their exchange programmes in advance.

The session concluded on a positive note, with students expressing their gratitude to the speakers for sharing their compelling stories and valuable advice. Many attendees remained after the event to inquire further about the SEP, highlighting the session's success in providing useful information and inspiring students to explore international study opportunities.


Overall, the SEP Sharing Session served as an invaluable platform for students to gain insights, learn from their peers' experiences, and receive guidance on pursuing overseas studies. It underscored SOMAC and GMO's commitment to supporting students in their academic and personal development by facilitating opportunities for global learning and cultural exchange.
