More trips for students

More trips for students

The Asian national unions of students may soon have an Asian Student Travel Bureau. The bureau would be responsible for the stimulation of student travel in Asia and development of travel facilities for Asian students' unions without travel bureaus.

The International Student Conference will sponsor a feasibility study for the project next month. A member of one of the sophisticated European Student Travel Bureaux will travel to New Zealand and other Asian countries in the course of the study.


The export will examine and advise on the relatively recently formed New Zealand Student Travel Bureau. It is also hoped his visit will stimulate local student interest in travel in the Asian region.

To China

Another student trip to China is being organised this year. But it may be the last, because the shipping service is scheduled to be withdrawn. Other group trips offered this year are to Russia, New Caledonia, Samoa and Fiji.

The first

Also this year will be first organised trip to the United States.


A considerable concession will still be offered on travel to Australia. Over 20 flights will be leaving for Australia after final exams, at 25% discount.

Students travelling on these flights can return at their discretion within a year of departure, to any of the four main centres.
