Introduction: In August 2018, three Master of Public Health (MPH) students from the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences, University Malaysia Sabah visited the School of Tropical Medicine and Global Health (TMGH), Nagasaki University in Japan. Methods: They were joined by a faculty lecturer from the Community and Family Medicine Department. The objective of the ten-day educational trip was to attend the short course on Spatial Eco-Epidemiology Technologies at Public Health at Nagasaki University, School of TMGH. Results: The trip provided students with practical and theoretical experience of the latest technologies in the field of spatial eco-epidemiology. It also provided an opportunity to learn from the Japanese culture and gave them a well-rounded foundation upon which to build their knowledge for future careers in public health. Conclusion: This fantastic opportunity would not have been possible without the generous support and funding provided by UMS Student Mobility Programme.
