Global opportunities photo competition

Entries for 2021/22 now open! 

The Study Abroad Photo competition is now open again! 

This year the photo competition is open to all students undertaking global opportunities abroad – this includes study, work, volunteering and teaching abroad. 

We want images that tell a story and narrate your international experiences! Why not send us a selfie against beautiful scenery or amongst a bustling city street; a photo of you taking part in an unusual cultural experience or trying new foods – anything that provides context. 

The competition is open until Tuesday 31 May 2022.

The winner will receive a £150 Amazon voucher, and two runners up will each win a £50 Amazon voucher.

Please ensure you have read our terms and conditions before entering the competition.
