Why bother with a post grad? Are they even worth it? Have your say! 26-10-2016

    Hey so I'm currently about to start university in September and after an amazing summer I really want to make sure next year is just as good.

    As a university student I should have about 12 weeks free

    I'm basically willing to go anywhere in the world, doing anything at all as in volunteering, working or just travelling as long as I can see a new country however also obviously as a student, I won't have a ton of money (very hard to estimate as I've yet to find another job, save, etc)

    I've looked around at many volunteering/work schemes online and they're all asking for an extremely large amount of money so I'm wondering if anyone knows of any schemes/companies that allow people to volunteer/work/travel abroad for relatively cheap (e.g under £500)

    I'm really open to anything! Please just share any schemes you know of that maybe fit what I'm looking for

    I'm also taking a course in human geography with future aims of helping with poverty and the developing world so an experience abroad would really help me with this too

    Thank you! I've taken a look and it seems perfect, as I'm an NCS graduate I'm also thinking I'll have a slightly better chance of being selected too!

    You can work as a volunteer for non-governmental organizations in some countries in Asia.

    You should visit Southeast Asia where you can travel a lot of places with the budget. You can refer at Vietnam Tour Booking.
