Study abroad photo competition launched by University

Students at one university in the north west of England are being invited to share photographs of their study abroad and gap year experiences in a new competition.Launched this week, the LUMS International Office is running the photo contest for those who have spent time studying abroad while at Lancaster University.

For the chance to win a £50 Trespass voucher, entrants are required to submit their favourite photograph, complete with a brief caption to explain their study abroad experience.While some young people choose to study abroad on their gap year overseas, many spend their time gaining work experience or volunteering in deprived communities.Earlier this month, Alice Pulford told the Daily Mail how her gap year voluntary work, teaching in Africa, had inspired her devotion to providing a brighter future for young girls less fortunate than herself.Since her first trip several years ago, Ms Pulford has arranged voluntary teaching placements in Malawi and helped build an orphanage in Tilinanu.
