Meet our Deakin University 2017 New Colombo Plan Scholars:
Callan’s passion for sustainable architecture and international education has led him to India, where he undertook a trimester at CEPT University, gaining insightful knowledge into the country’s architectural practices. Through the New Colombo Plan Scholarship, Callan also took the opportunity to pick up a new language – Hindi. He has since moved on to internships in different parts of India and hopes to contribute his skills to the local communities.
Chris began his journey at Deakin University studying a Bachelor of Computer Science at the age of 24. Motivated by his passion for technology, Chris has chosen to use his New Colombo Plan Scholarship to study at the University of Hong Kong (HKU) for two trimesters, focusing on computer science. Chris believes that there is a revolution happening in technology, and hopes to be a part of it by undertaking an internship program after completing his study at HKU.
Rachel has recently arrived in Malaysia to study at UCSI University as part of her Bachelor of Psychology (Honours). In addition to working as a lifeguard, Rachel has dedicated her time to be a peer mentor at Deakin University while also volunteering in various organisations.
