10 Reasons to EXPLO
10 Reasons for STUDENTS

- SAMPLE (A TASTE OF) THE BIGGER, WIDER WORLD – Broaden your horizons by actively exploring the world.
- ADD SKILLS TO YOUR TOOLBOX – Widen your portfolio of abilities for a challenging and competitive marketplace. Use the opportunity, in a reassuring environment, to explore your team competence.
- DIFFERENTIATE YOURSELF – In a world of talented candidates, unusual experiences are eye-catching to future interviewers and give you the opportunity to discuss what you have learnt, and the skills you can bring forward from your Explo.
- GAIN PERSPECTIVE – Away from an established peer group routine habits often fade away and you enrich your life with friendships from around the world.
- CONTRIBUTE – Helping a good cause is a very rewarding experience.
- REKINDLE YOUR DESIRE TO LEARN – A change is as good as a rest: on returning to education after a break most students prove to be more motivated and focused than those who have not taken constructive time away from study.
- EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE – Essential to a well-balanced life and more likely to be developed through active achievements and experiencing cultural diversity.
