Summer Experiential Learning Programmes with Projects Abroad

Founded in 1992, Projects Abroad have been a global leader in responsible travel for over 30 years. During this time, we’ve helped over 130,000 volunteers and students broaden their horizons through immersive experiences abroad.

With our projects, students take part in meaningful experiences by making long-term, positive impacts around the world. Through a combination of volunteering and adventure, students will be inspired, empowered, and challenged.

Immerse Education was founded in 2012 with the aim of providing students aged 13-18 with unparalleled educational experiences. We have educated thousands of students through our exceptional academic enrichment programmes in the colleges of Oxford and Cambridge University, University College London and the University of Sydney.

Our carefully designed curricula not only stimulate students’ intellectual curiosity, challenging their expectations in their own ability, but will also motivate them as they embark on decisions about their university studies, and future goals.
