As uni students, we are desperately craving those periods of time that we have off to either relax or, in most cases, travel. Here are some budget-friendly options to fulfill your travel desires while on a student budget!
Travel in your town
Who says you need to leave town to have a mini-break? You’d surprised how much of the town you are currently living in that you have not explored. Find yourself a new cafe, go to the local gallery, check out the local walking tracks, have some spontaneous and relaxed ‘you’ time!
Travel to local towns
I know being a student on the Wagga Wagga Campus that there are so many local towns surrounding that have fun and adventurous things to offer. Spend a little time researching and plan a day trip to a surrounding town. For example, Junee has a great chocolate factory or if you are more of an outdoors person, Adelong is a great town to venture to.
Travel with friends
You meet a lot of people through uni who you may have never crossed paths due to the fact they grew up hours away from you! So why not share your mini-break with your friends and travel to each other’s hometowns and host each other. After all you will have a free tour guide who knows the best spots to go!
Travel with CSU
Looking for an overseas uni budget break? We all want to be jet-setters who are traveling the world experiencing new and familiar cultures and unfortunately, this is something that is usually expensive and as a uni student, we don’t have the time for. Luckily enough, CSU offers programs that allow you to travel overseas for a brief period of time experience a new culture and learn. In turn, these trips credit towards your marks. Two birds with one stone – they are more affordable and educational!
