The South West TAFE (SWTAFE) student flew to Scotland on Thursday as part of her graduate certificate in working globally studies.

Miss Smith said she had packed her “winter woolies” for the three-month experience, which she said would be invaluable.

“I have a bit of anxiety and stress but I’m really excited,” she said.

“… (I) hope to be able to network and become more globally aware in my position at my workplace upon my return.”

The trip will first see the 22-year-old placed in Scottish golf capital St Andrews for a month to work in events and conferencing, before attending Kirkcaldy’s Adam Smith College for another month.

Her final four weeks will be spent studying in Denmark at the Silkeborg Technical College before returning to Australia in June.

Miss Smith said she could face some language, culture shock and homesickness obstacles while travelling, despite having travelled to Denmark on student exchange in high school.

SWTAFE hospitality, tourism and service skills centre manager Liz Waters said she was proud to be able to offer global working experiences to south-west students.

“It gives them a unique opportunity to travel, experience new cultures, and develop globally relevant skills at the same time,” she said.
