UniBRIDGE Project Award for Australian Participants

UniBRIDGE Project Awards

UniBRIDGE Project Awards - Indonesia

Thousands of Australians and Indonesians have engaged in online language & intercultural exchanges via UniBRIDGE Project since 2012. Over that time UniBRIDGE Project has also awarded financial support for Indonesian students to travel to Australia and visit the friends they have made through online, synchronous video & voice communication (web-conferencing).
