5 weirdest opportunities for students in the world!
by Igor Pilic

Ready for real adventure?

If you thought that young people only travel to the safest and the most common places to gain experiences, you were wrong. I still remember when I was a student just few years ago, student programs abroad were quite an unknown concept and were regarded as something that only the rich could participate in. But that was pre-HeySuccess era!

Now in the HeySuccess era, the borders have been moved further out. For some of you, even this planet has become too small.

Ladies and gentleman, let me present to you some of the weirdest and most exotic student programs we have had on our site. But before I do so, let me present you two more usual but equaly extraordinary opportunities!

Here is one great scholarship to study in Estonia. Or your are more into a fully funded trip to Netherlands?

Now take a deep breath and enjoy the weirdest and most exotic student programs ever!

 

1. Volunteering in North Korea

Even the most isolated country in the world accepts foreign young people.

When we promoted this volunteering opportunity from January this year, we were flooded with enormous interest. It seems that many young people are brave and adventurous and they realize what a great, impactful experience they could have from the opportunity to teach English in North Korea. The organizers have already selected 28 volunteers and the first two volunteers (Dustin and Jessica) are already in North Korea (by the way, what a cool North Korean fashion, isn't it? frown.

Beyond the life-changing experience, imagine how exciting it will be to tell future employers, significant others, and friends about your experiences volunteering in North Korea. What a great addition to a resume!

We will update you when the selection process begins for 2016’s volunteer group!

 

2. A Fully Funded Trip to Space

Are you bored of Earth? How about travelling to space and experiencing something that only 500 people have experienced ever?

Here is the opportunity for you to travel to space, plus five finalists will receive a fully funded trip to One Young World Summit in Thailand in November 2015.
Enjoy space and seeing our beautiful planet from that distance!

 

3. Trip to the South Pole

Do you remember Sunil? Yes, the HeySuccess mate who travelled to the South Pole as a part of Mr Robert Swan’s mission. Sunil is from India, and he managed to fundraise over $36,000 in a very short period of time and enjoy this life-changing trip to see our friends, the penguins and Weddell seals.

You can read his blog story about his experience and apply here for a similar program (this time to the North Pole).

 

4. Internships, Scholarships and Conferences in Exotic Resorts

Imagine that you have an opportunity to relax here every day after work?

There are some very exciting internships available in places like Cook Islands, FijiBermuda, and Barbados! Do you like exotic places so much that you would want to stay longer than just a few months? Then here you go: a scholarship and conference in Mauritius!

 

5. Internship in Tiny European Countries: Vatican, Lichtenstein, San Marino…

Imagine having an internship and, in those 2-3 months, you have the opportunity to meet most of the people from an entire country. Maybe even a President or the Pope! Fancy the idea?

Then check out these internship opportunities in Lichtenstein, Vatican, and San Marino. Or are you more interested in a colder climate? Then Iceland is the place for you!

Now it's your turn to tell us here to which of the above destinations you would like to travel and why? Few of you with the most interesting answers will be awarded with a surprise at your doorstep (yes, a surprise will be sent from exotic & weird places).
Keep it up, champion! In our next newsletter, I will bring you something extraordinary! I promise you will be blown away. Stay tuned!

And do not forget: only the Sky is the Limit! Or actually it's not? wink
