What is the Semester Break Programme (SBP)?
The SBP is targeted at overseas-based Malaysian students who are home for the holidays. It is designed to introduce students to Malaysia’s key economic sectors through meet-and-learn sessions with industry leaders and experts, as well as site visits to iconic infrastructure projects. SBP runs twice a year in Malaysia, from June to August and December to February.
What is the application process like?
Step 1: Apply by submitting your application on-line below
Step 2: You will be contacted closer to the start of each cycle, on your participation status for each event
What are Corporate Leaders Sessions?
Events where you get to engage with influential corporate leaders in a less formal setting. We have had sessions with leaders such as Tan Sri Tony Fernandes, Dato' Izzaddin Idris, and Dato' Kong Sooi Lin.
What are Industry Insights?
Events where you get to meet and learn from professionals in top corporations. You will gain a clearer picture of what it is like to work in Malaysia’s priority sectors, and perhaps even secure yourself an internship opportunity with our partner employers.
What are Field Trips?
Exclusive site visits which provide you with exposure, allowing you an in-depth look into Malaysia’s leading employers in the various industries that are transforming the nation. These sessions are usually half a day.
Can I still apply to join if my field of study is not related to the events?
Yes. We encourage you to explore new industries that you may not have been aware of. This not only opens up more opportunities for your career growth, but allow you to stay relevant in a rapidly changing economy.
How are participants shortlisted? How can I be guaranteed a seat for these events?
As each session only offers a limited number of seats, availability will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Shortlisted participants will be contacted via telephone/e-mail closer to the event date.
What should I wear to a Semester Break Programme session?
The dress code for all sessions is office wear, unless stated otherwise.
