In a merit of success and academic prowess, a Wodonga student is heading to India for an overseas adventure. Wodonga La Trobe University student Harry Rule had been awarded the New Colombo Plan scholarship in Canberra earlier this week, and has only been achieved by two students in the region before. NCP Scholarships support Australian undergraduates to study, intern and undertake language training for up to 19 months. Mr Rule, who is studying a Bachelor of Psychological Science at the Albury-Wodonga campus looks forward to diving deep into another culture. "The idea of immersing myself in a new culture, gaining new perspectives, learning a language and just overall growing as a person left me with an incredible feeling," he said. "I knew that the experiences and skills I'd gain would shape me into a more creative, culturally competent and empathetic human and leader, no matter what occupation I entered in the future." Five students across La Trobe universities will join him on the NCP program, where he will broaden his knowledge and experience living and studying abroad while learning another language. Me Rule said it was a highly competitive application process but would be a big achievement for the Wodonga campus.
