If your interest is in Asia and all things Asian, FASStrack Asia will be perfect for you.

Taught over a 5-week summer period you will attend classes, participate in active discussions and go on field trips with academic experts

“I went on the FASSTrack Asia Summer Exchange program at the National University of Singapore where I studied a course on Human Trafficking in Southeast Asia. As part of this program I not only met amazing people from all around the world, I also undertook 10 days of field research in Thailand and Cambodia where I met with officials from the United Nations and the U.S. Embassy.” - UNSW Arts & Social Sciences student Ben Robbins.
