“Students from the University of Newcastle, the University of New England, the Australian National University and Edith Cowan University will study a broad range of subjects including health, society and culture” John Langtry, Australian Ambassador to Mongolia said.

“New Colombo Plan mobility students will return to Australia with new insights and understanding about Mongolia and new friendships that will last a lifetime,” the ambassador added.

New Colombo Plan 2017 mobility projects in Mongolia include:

  • The Big Idea in Mongolia
