As Asia’s fastest growing region, Southeast Asia in general and Vietnam in particular has some of the best exclusive case studies for your students to learn about, from small-scale and lower-tech agricultural production to an solid yet overloaded healthcare system, ecological jeopardy, cultural heritage preservation, robust manufacturing growth and business opportunities in tourism, financial services, information technology, etc. Since 2014, ABROADER has partnered with more than 150 companies, higher education institutions and non-profit organizations in these sectors and many more to design and deliver impactful customized faculty-led, onsite or remote internship and service-learning programs both inside and outside of Vietnam for international students of 20+ nationalities. Our programs are recognized and highly appreciated by all parties involved, especially faculty members and study abroad administrators from our 35+ overseas partners for their unique qualities below:

I thank you for your warm greetings ever since my first visit to Hanoi in 2015. We mainly deal with study tours for Japanese university students, but it is not unusual for students to go abroad for the first time. In an environment where individualized care is required for such students, sincere support has always been provided. Also, seeing our students interact with local students and host families in English, which is not their native language, allows for communication from the heart, which extends beyond just language. That experience has led to their confidence, and this is always touching. All of this is thanks to the pre-training of local students and host families and your efforts as a team. As a result, every student has provided an excellent evaluation every year, which leads to new business for us. We hope that we will continue to grow together and continue to be good partners.

ABROADER is a valued partner for our four week Faculty-led study program in Vietnam. We have engaged ABROADER to facilitate the yearly program since 2016. What has made the program so successful and engaging for the students is the professionalism and extra effort made by the staff to ensure that the finest details of the program are meticulously planned. Their fastidious attention to detail is one of the distinguishing factors that sets them apart from other providers. ABROADER is easy to work with and always accommodating of any last minute program suggestions. ABROADER has an extensive industry network that they utilise to provide the students with industry tours relevant to their classroom work. They have well established links to a number of Vietnamese Universities and use them such that coordinated activities and learning experiences are shared between Vietnamese students and the students from Newcastle. ABROADER maintains a local buddy system which pairs Vietnamese students with Newcastle students hence providing an amazing insight into the Vietnamese people and culture. Students from Newcastle also appreciate the culture and volunteer days, not only as a break from their classroom studies, but as a learning experience as well as a chance to give a little back to Vietnam. ABROADER, you are providing a great service and have a well satisfied partner!

I would like to thank you for your leadership, guidance and support of our pre-service teachers on the recent Vietnam International Professional Experience. Your thorough planning, preparation and attention to detail, along with your outstanding leadership during this professional experience, ensured that it was a great success for all concerned. The experiences that you enabled our pre-service teachers to have, and the relationships that you have built with collaborating schools, are vital to the work of the Faculty Education at Monash University. Your wealth of knowledge and experience in support the organization of quality International Professional Experience for our students is highly appreciated and valued. I am sure that the experiences had by all participants in this practicum will remain with them for many years to come.

Working with ABROADER has been a delight; their partnership in building a program that works for both our model and local realities has been top notch. Over the last few years, we have worked closely together to open a new location for Northwestern’s Global Engagement Studies Institute (GESI) in Hanoi. This eight-week program sends small groups of Northwestern students to intern directly with community-based organizations in Hanoi to partner on work prioritized by the host organization. ABROADER builds and maintains relationships with a wide variety of organizations that are passionate about their missions, as well as hosting students. Working collectively to prioritize both student learning as well as host organization priorities/community outcomes has been ideal. During their time abroad GESI students also partner with local buddies, peers from local colleges and universities, who work with them as teammates throughout the eight weeks. Working with local buddies has proved invaluable; GESI students have gained a significant depth of perspective of live in Hanoi, both professional and personal, by working as teammates. From work placements and homestays to local buddies and cultural excursions, ABROADER has been not only available, but proactive in facilitating an experience that offers students deep engagement.
