The internationalization of tertiary education is giving rise to a number of 'export education' models, but cross-cultural collaborative educational programmes pose several challenges. Most undergraduate computing degrees include a capstone project as a means of consolidating student learning within an integrative final learning experience, which aims to prepare them for further study or varying forms of professional practice. Typically these projects are coordinated and conducted in an 'onshore' setting, although notable exceptions do exist. We report our early experiences and the key decisions taken in replicating an 'onshore' capstone course from a New Zealand setting, to a full student cohort studying our Bachelor of Computer and Information Sciences in a 'farshore' context in Vietnam. We explore the myriad of issues relating to the oversight, design and structuring of the course, when tailoring an inherently open ended team based project to a radically different remote setting.
