Expand your horizons this summer with City Travel Review’s study/work abroad gap programmes
Experiencing life abroad as a student is one of the best decisions you’ll ever make. Getting to grips with a foreign country’s language, culture, customs and history, is a great way of stepping off campus life and gaining a new life perspective – not to mention giving a great boost to your C.V.
City Travel Review organises study/work gap programmes for young people, combining cross-cultural language training with creative team research projects in some of Europe’s most exciting cities, including Berlin, Edinburgh, Madrid and Lyon.
Our programmes allow students, gap yearers, graduates and career-breakers to integrate work, travel and formal education in a fun and friendly team. Whether you fancy going away for just 3 weeks, or 3 whole months, you’re guaranteed to come away having acquired new skills and made life-long friends.
So how does it all work? Students split their time between language classes and project sessions with our expert staff of tutors and freelance media employees. They learn how to go about creating their own travel guide – from the research phase to the writing, layout and design – before setting out to explore the city.
On our part, we will meet you at the airport, introduce you to the city, hook you up with group accommodation and provide you with the resources needed for you to do your work. We also arrange a packed programme of trips and excursions designed to get the most out of your time abroad.
On successful completion of the project, you will receive a reference from us as well as a copy of your guide – most often in the form of an online e-book which students are then free to distribute or sell themselves (though we do our bit to help with the marketing as well).
Our programmes attract students from all walks of life, particularly those interested in journalism, editorial, photography, film, PR, graphic design, layout, marketing, tourism and modern languages.
We like to give students the flexibility to come up with their own article ideas and pursue their interests (or perhaps discover new ones…) – whether that be following the tapas trail in Madrid, going techno-crazy in Berlin, getting inspired by Edinburgh’s story-telling traditions or diving into Lyon’s famous vineyards.
