Antarctic Heritage Trust: Trip of a Lifetime

Do you have a passion for travel and meeting like-minded people?

Applications for Antarctic Heritage Trust’s 2020 Inspiring Explorers’ Expedition are now open. The Trust’s Inspiring Explorers’ Expeditions connect young people with the spirit of exploration.

The Expedition in March 2020 will explore the Antarctic Peninsula by ship with the opportunity to kayak in Antarctic waters. You will travel with Expedition Partner Quark Expeditions via ship from South America across the famed Drake Passage to and from Antarctica.

This Expedition offers you an incredible opportunity to embrace the spirit of exploration in the world’s most extreme environment. You will experience the spirit of the early polar explorers; a remarkable legacy the Trust cares for on behalf of humanity.

You will have the opportunity to:
  • Learn and develop new skills, including kayaking.
  • Connect with experts to learn about the history, science, wildlife and the environment of Antarctica.
  • Join Olympian Mike Dawson and Quark Expeditions’ guides for kayaking adventures in Antarctic waters.
  • Be challenged and get out of your comfort zone.

UC Global Exchange Application Deadline – extended to 1 October!

Did assignments get in the way of your Global Exchange application? 

Great news, the deadline to apply for the UC Global Exchange Programme in Semester 2 2020 has been extended to 1 October 2019*!

Our Global Exchange programme is a unique opportunity, allowing you to study for either a semester or a year at one of our many partner universities, as part of your UC degree! And with over 60 partner universities around the globe you can choose to study in some amazing locations, including Singapore, France and Denmark, to the UK, USA and more.

The great thing about our Global Exchange programme is that you pay your tuition fees to UC and not to the partner university. We also offer a travel award to eligible students participating in the 2020 Global Exchange programme (terms and conditions apply).

*Please note that if places are limited at partner universities, priority will be given to students who applied by the original 1 September deadline. Some universities may have early deadlines, see website above for details.

Jake McConnell studied towards his Bachelor of Engineering in Civil Engineering on exchange at University of Colorado-Boulder in 2019.

“DO IT! Make it work, and everywhere overseas is a great time! I have a whole new set of friends (like family) overseas in Colorado. The exchange opened my eyes to a whole new culture and way of socialising!”
