International 4 week Expeditions (Community Project/Trekking and Culture)
For any student that really fancies a challenge and getting out of their comfort zone there is the opportunity to get involved in a 4 week expedition to a remote part of the world. Groups have already been to Vietnam, Peru, Tanzania, Indian Himalaya and in 2016 a group of students will travel to Borneo and in 2017 to Ecuador and the expedition for 2018 will be Cambodia.
This really is a wonderful personal development programme that allows students to develop a wide range of key transferable skills such as teamwork, leadership, decision making, time management, enterprise, initiative and many more. It is without doubt a very big additional commitment on top of student’s studies but previous students have shown that it is not only possible but often it can enhance other aspects of life in a very positive way. The cost of involvement in the expedition is approximately £3500 and the students raise this through individual and group fundraising alongside part time work and any creative ideas of raising funds. It is without doubt the chance to have a life changing trip and feedback form students that have been involved in the past is incredibly positive.
