We offer incredible challenges across some of the most amazing countries in the world. Our great relationships with universities mean that you can sign up to an exclusive challenge with other like-minded individuals from your society or join one of our open challenges with students around the country.

The challenges we offer are all run directly by ourselves and our huge network of Country Managers and teams, supported by Challenges Abroad interns. This allows us to offer a different experience than everyone else, an experience which we know is second to none. Our talented UK team will support you all the way from sign up until your departure, and when you arrive in country you’ll have the support of us here in the UK as well as our professionals in country.

To book on to one of our programmes you need to sign up with a participant fee of £275 which then confirms your place. Once you’ve paid this you will be sent a welcome pack with loads of useful information about your challenge as well as some key fundraising ideas. Our team at Challenges Abroad and the charity will then support you over the following months with all the help you need to reach your target.

You can either search on the right to find the trips your university are running, or if you want to browse through our challenges and different trip dates then select one of our full range below. We promise getting involved with us will ensure you have an incredible summer.
