WHY EMBRACE WANDERLUST?
Besides the fact that you’ll spend two weeks experiencing and discovering an incredible city, there are many reasons and benefits to getting Intense Wanderlust:
Build your international network: make a wide variety of connections all over the world while improving your ability to work with, communicate and understand individuals from diverse backgrounds
Broaden your global knowledge: we live in a multicultural world; understanding different customs, cultures and traditions will always be an advantage in whatever career you choose
Stand out: employers are fascinated and impressed by students who have studied and gained experience abroad – stand out from others in a pile of CV’s and in interviews
Develop new skills: travel improves your adaptability and problem-solving skills, often in unfamiliar or challenging situations – developing independence, resilience, leadership skills and confidence can help lead to better job opportunities
Personal growth: travel and study overseas can help you become more independent, mature and confident while willing to try new things and put yourself out there
Self-discovery: realise what makes you tick, what kind of life you want to live in the future and what’s really important to you
Get out of your comfort zone: try new food, learn a new language, make new friends, learn to ski, try kite-surfing, do a skydive, learn to scuba dive; the opportunities are endless – NOW is your chance to start living a previously-unimaginable life.
Become a Global Citizen: be a traveller not a tourist – embrace the most diverse regions, populations, cultures and languages to become a true traveller.
