CICD: Study! Travel! Volunteer!
2017. 04. 05.

The College for International Co-operation and Development is a residental college in Winestead, England.

In the school the teachers and the students live together and also their common responsibility is to keep the school clean, to cook for each other or to renovate buildings.   Are you ready for big challenges?  Would you like to take action together with others to make the world a better place? Do you want to learn about life in Africa and India by investigation and own experience?

Currently the enrollment fee is £350, but it can vary, so please, ask us about the actual sum. Besides the enrollment fee, every programme has a curse fee which covers the volunteer’s food, accomodation and the expenses of the traveling to the project.

  • For the 5 month programme, the course fees are £ 3,600.
  • For the 12 month programme, the course fees are £ 3,200.
  • For the 10 month programme, the course fees are 2,700 Euro.

In case you don’t have enough money to pay for the course, you can work for it in the Gaia Environmental Course.This programmes means 4-6 months plus time during which you will work to earn the money to pay the course fee. It is important to mention that in case of the Gaia programme you still have to pay the enrollment fee (£350).
