We offer a range of incredible challenges for both adventure and study related specialist programs. Our great relationships with universities means 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 Australia and 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 Australia, the UK as well as our professionals in country.

To book on to one of our programs you need to sign up with a deposit of $250 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 will then support you over the coming months with everything you need such as help with flights, visas and vaccinations.

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.
