What type of experiences are available?

We know that everyone is different and what’s right for one person, might not be a good ‘fit’ for someone else. That’s why we offer a broad range of short-term summer placements.

We work with partners across the globe to provide experiences including:

Supporting you

We know that the decision to undertake a global experience is an important one, especially if you haven’t lived abroad before. We encourage you to do your research before you apply to ensure that the opportunity is a good fit for you. Consider your personal circumstances, lifestyle, budget and expected learning outcomes.
