LEARN NEW SKILLS STUDYING IN ANOTHER COUNTRY

As tuition fees in the UK make university education an expensive option for most people, an increasing number of UK students are now looking at study options abroad. This might be as part of an international exchange or for a full degree in another country.

STUDY IN EUROPE OR FURTHER AFIELD

For those wanting to stay close to home, UK students can study across Europe without the need for a visa, with many EU member states also offering higher education for free. At the same time more and more European universities are teaching courses in English which means that language is no longer a barrier.

However Venture also caters for those students looking to explore further afield. English-speaking destinations such as the USA, Canada and Australia are attractive locations for many UK students and we are able to advise young people on the costs and practicalities involved in applying to these countries.

TRAVEL AS PART OF A GAP YEAR OR CAREER BREAK

Taking a study or career break in order to explore the world and gain new experiences is a growing trend in the UK. Such a trip might include a working holiday, backpacking or time spent on a volunteer project. There is an international option out there for everyone but finding the one which suits you best can sometimes seem like an overwhelming task.

ALL THE INFORMATION YOU NEED

Our expertly written country guides provide all the essential information you need to plan your trip. From the visas to apply for, to when is best to visit, or the work and volunteer options available. The only trouble you will have is fitting everything into your schedule!

FURTHER YOUR CAREER BY WORKING INTERNATIONALLY

The dream of escaping the rat race in the UK for a job abroad is becoming a reality for many – whether this is for short term placements or more long term career moves. And its not hard to understand why. Apart from the better weather, recent research has found that people with international experience are paid on average £2,000 more than colleagues in similar jobs.
