For approximately a decade, Forum Universiti (University Forum), an MOU programme between MediaCorp Suria and Radio Television Brunei, have seen the congregation of undergraduates from both countries. It is a platform for young innovative minds to discuss important issues affecting them, share their concerns and sharpen their thinking. The past decade has brought with it other learning and sharing opportunities, which will be leveraged in the new reality TV programme entitled, “XPEDISI SISWA”.
XPEDISI SISWA (Uni Expedition) is a one-hour reality TV programme telecast in both Singapore and Brunei Darussalam. It is an experiential learning experience where a group of undergraduates from both Singapore and Brunei Darussalam travel to an Asian country for a few days. There, they will be ‘adopted’ by a local family, experience the local culture and lifestyle of the community and will be put through two challenges which will test their teamwork, general knowledge and other life skills. The world is your classroom.
XPEDISI SISWA is programmed to allow the participants and also the audience to learn about the language, culture, history and geography of the location where the participants call home for five days. Being in a foreign land, participants will have to rely on their soft skills to adapt, more so if they are put through challenges. Thus they have an opportunity to learn about themselves and each other. The participants will be 4 undergraduates from each country. Each team of 4 members will comprise of both Singapore and Brunei representatives.
In light of this, Mediacorp Suria will be holding an audition for FULL-TIME STUDENTS aged 18-25 from SMU, NTU, NUS & SIM at 2pm at Caldecott Broadcast Centre this Saturday 10th April 2010. Interested individuals will need to email the organisers their particulars (name and IC number) for security clearance purposes. Emails can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, latest by Friday 9th April 2010 12pm.
