How to travel on a student budget by Hannah

How to travel on a student budget

As a student it is easy to think that debt and loans prevent you from travelling. However the study abroad programme at Leeds Beckett enables students to travel and study at the same time in such a way that it may not cost as much as you think. There are also ways of saving money so that you can travel on a budget. Here are a few tips I have picked up as an exchange student.

how to travel and be a successful student by Hannah

How to travel AND be a successful student

Before coming to Australia I had been both travelling and been a student for 1 ½ years, but I had never been both at the same time. Combining travelling and studying in the study abroad programme uses a different set of skills that I have had to perfect in order to make the most of my time here, without falling behind with uni work. Here are a few tips on how to be a successful student and explore the world, for those of you who are considering studying abroad.
