New travel abroad scheme for all students - Westminster Enterprise Challenge

2 January 2013

Join the Westminster Enterprise Challenge and get international exposure without having to commit to a long-term study abroad programme.

We know that students want to gain employability skills and we know that students love to travel. We are also aware that students lead busy lives and can’t always commit to a full year or semester abroad.

According to an online poll conducted by Populus last month, under-25s are most likely to regret not studying abroad when they had the chance.

To make sure that all students can reap the benefits of travelling abroad, the Students' Union and University have come together to create the Westminster Enterprise Challenge – a challenge that allows you to discover yourself and experience the world over a shorter period of time.

Westminster Enterprise Challenges can be set by students themselves or by course leaders. When you successfully complete your challenge abroad, you'll be awarded a certificate of achievement by the Students' Union and University - and you'll also have invaluable experiences to add to your CV.
