Program Description:

Vietnam 2020 Unbound

Offered by Unbound, and supported by the Australian Government's New Colombo Plan, the Sustainable Development Vietnam is an immersive educational program to provide students with first-hand knowledge of the SDGs in an emerging economy context. This program adopts a Human-Centred Design approach to problem-solving an design which “starts with the people you’re designing for and ends with new solutions that are tailor-made to suit their needs” (IDEO). You'll have the opportunity to develop and enhance existing community projects, or create new ones while ensuring that local communities are at the heart of each project. You will partner with a team of other Australian students, local 'design for development' experts, and communities to develop projects with a Vietnamese focus. 

Students are advised to book flights only when Faculty approval has been sought and admission into the program has been confirmed by the Unbound. Please note that students will be traveling independently to Vietnam. This is not a study tour led by University of Adelaide staff.
