‘A’ LEVELS & CLEARING
"I cannot do justice to how important my experience in India was to my application, so much so that yesterday I received an offer from Manchester (where I really wanted to go!). Not only this, but my experience contributed to me getting a job in the NHS. Joe Harris, Medicine, India
“The English media is notoriously difficult to enter, with the number of applicants vastly exceeding the number of success stories. My Travellers Worldwide placement provided the ideal opportunity to gain a truly unique international experience, setting me apart from my peers when applying for both jobs and university places. My portfolio of work, dominated by work published in the Sri Lankan Daily Mirror, was the primary reason for my successful entry onto the prestigious Postgraduate Diploma in Magazine Journalism at Cardiff University." Andrew Pierce on his Journalism placement in Sri Lanka

What do UCAS say about taking a gap year? "Taking a gap year can be a great experience and one which helps you get the skills you need for higher education. Gap years cover loads of options, from travelling abroad to work or volunteer, retaking qualifications, or learning something new that hasn't been an option before".
My employer [the BBC] said she was impressed with the month I did in Australia, because it showed I had the initiative to get out there and do something productive, and it was something that stood out amongst the hundreds of CVs she received! Thanks a million, Travellers!" Carmen Butcher

READ WHAT SOME OF OUR VOLUNTEERS AND INTERNS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT HOW THEIR PLACEMENTS HELPED THEM IN THEIR STUDIES AND THEIR CAREERS:
"I completed a month's TV work experience in Perth. In the UK, I had struggled to obtain media work experience and thought your program was an excellent way to combine the two… I came back to the UK from my travels in May and in September I was offered a 6 month contract with MTV as their creative intern, and upon nearing the end of my contract, have now been offered a year contract at the BBC as production co-ordinator. I just wanted to say a massive thank you for my experience, both work and culturally, in Australia. I would hugely recommend this to anyone, especially those who want to break into media via an alternative path. It really is something I will never forget. Thanks a million, Travellers!" Carmen Butcher
I came out here just for the work experience, so I could have a pretty looking CV that companies back home would notice. It turned out to be the best thing I've ever done, I am SO glad I took the risk because it's opened my eyes to what I can see and do with my life." Andrew Coupe-Harris, Graphic Design & Advertising Internship in South Africa.
"With retrospect, my decision to travel to Sri Lanka as a Travellers Worldwide Volunteer has proved to be amongst the most critical and rewarding choices of my life to date, allowing me to travel in safety with complete confidence, and to progress both professionally and personally." Andrew Pierce
"Heading out to Cape Town was a gamble for me. I'd just finished a summer as a freelance journalist covering cricket and didn't have much work for the winter. I found out about the Travellers scheme and it seemed ideal – a month on a sports desk to build by experience and make contacts. It couldn't really have gone any better.
The team at the Cape Argus were brilliant. I wrote a couple of features over the Christmas period and helped to cover the South Africa-England Test at Newlands. During the Test I met a Cricinfo journalist – a month later I was offered a job on the website where I have been Editorial Assistant for 18 months and was part of the team that covered England winning the Ashes last summer. It was thanks to the Travellers placement that I'm now in my dream job." Andrew McGlashan
