Record Numbers Apply for Short-term Specials
The 2-Week Specials programmes were introduced by Projects Abroad four years ago in response to lots of interest from students who wanted a gap year taster experience either in a school holiday or in the summer before starting university. This year we have had record numbers applying for the programmes.
If you want to join a programme for this summer you will need to apply as soon as possible. The projects are on set dates throughout the summer.
The range of projects is wide and varied with volunteers joining journalism projects in Romania, sports projects in Ghana, medical projects in India amongst a selection of twenty different projects. To find out more about the other projects available click here.
Deepan Gosrani was in India on the medical project. She says "Thank you for the work experience in India. I had the most amazing time there and found it really enjoyable, with all the staff being very welcoming."
