Malaysia has a rich cultural heritage, and eight Hospitality and Tourism students have experienced this firsthand, recently returning from a visit to the country as part of the Australian Government’s New Colombo Plan Mobility Program.

Hosted by Taylor's University in Kuala Lumpur, The University of Queensland Business School students undertook a two-week intensive course in Culture, Cuisine and Gastronomy. 

Beyond the kitchen, students also visited the British and Australian High Commissions to learn about food and diplomacy, where they met with Her Excellency Vicki Treadell, the British High Commissioner to Malaysia.
