Who are we?
The camp is organized by the Malaysian Students' Council of Australia (MASCA) in collaboration with our affliates.
MASCA is the one-stop-centre for everything Malaysia in Australia. MASCA is more than a student representative council.
MASCA is driven by a team of highly enthusiastic and motivated students. We aspire to build a strong and united Malaysian community in Australia while forging close relations with the Australian community. MASCA is established across 6 States and 1 Territory (except Northern Territory). MASCA is for all rakyat Malaysia in Australia regardless of their backgrounds - students and non-students!
MASCA - Charting The Way for Malaysians Down Under!

About the Camp
The 4th ‘Down Under Camp’ would provide an opportunity for new students that are about to begin their journey in Australia to network with former and current students in Australia.
New students will be able to find out what studying in Australia is like and can learn more about living in Australia. Each state would send in their own representatives to brief and engage with new students. This would be useful for new students, as different states in Australia have unique issues and challenges. Apart from providing networking opportunities for new students, this pre departure event would also help current students in Australia to network with one other.
Lastly, it will also serve as a forum to address any matters concerning new students. To summarise, below are the objectives of the 4th Down Under Camp 2017.
- To serve the welfare needs of new students who will be studying in Australia through briefings, discussions and activities.
- To foster and strengthen the relationship between new, current and previous Malaysian students in Australia.
- To provide an opportunity for overseas students to contribute back to the local community in Malaysia.
