The UniBreak program gives you the opportunity to travel overseas and participate in community projects in a wide range of developing countries across Asia, Africa and South America. From the beautiful beaches of the Maldives to the breathtaking landscape of Nepal to the rich history of Peru, you can live, work and be completely immerse yourself in some of world’s most fascinating cultures.
You have complete control over which project and destination you travel to on your UniBreak, however placements in each destination are limited and in much demand. Therefore, it is highly recommended that you book well in advance in order to ensure your first preference when volunteering overseas.
WHICH DESTINATION IS RIGHT FOR ME?
Choosing the “right” destination can be difficult. We recommend considering several important factors when choosing a destination. Firstly, when considering your volunteer work, think about the type of community projects you wish to carry out and in which countries these projects are available. Secondly, consider different accommodation options. Do you envisage living with a local host family or would you prefer staying with other Australian students in guesthouse accommodation? Also consider past experience – you may want to travel somewhere completely new and unknown or you may have a favourite country you’re dying to return to.
Please read through the UniBreak Information Brief and attend an Information Night in order to determine which destination is most suitable for you. To read more about each destination, please refer to the map below or simply click on a country in our side menu.
You can also read stories from our past UniBreak students by jumping onto our blog, or heading to the “My Antipodeans Experience” page.
