Travel and overseas experiences, particularly those involving some form of outdoor education, are regarded by many young people, parents, university admissions departments and employers as beneficial to a young person’s development. Expeditions have been used in the UK as an educational tool since 1932, when the Public Schools Exploring Society ran its first expedition to Finland.
