Based in the spectacular Bay of Islands in New Zealand’s far north, the 12-week Masterclass in Adventure programme will immerse you in adventurous outdoor pursuits, as you carry out meaningful environmental research. Over the course of your three month New Zealand adventure, you will develop skills in scuba diving, ocean kayaking, sailing and seamanship, hiking and bush craft, and first aid in remote environments. You’ll learn from world class adventurers including Arctic explorers and Royal Marine Medics, and become an adventurer in your own right. When you graduate you’ll have made friends for life, carried out courageous expeditions and set a course for your life to be measured in actions, rather than intentions. You will be an adventurer, for good.
