This blended project follows on from the Coventry University summer school that took place in Malaysia during July 2018. The summer school included students from Coventry campus as well as India, Ghana, Singapore and Malaysia. Throughout the summer school students learned about Malaysian society and culture through a number of visits and activities, they also lived together in mixed groups, exposing them to different cultures and behaviours.
