The Gateway Challenges Blog shares stories from Murray Edwards students on the summer adventures, including travel, study and volunteering abroad. Abridge Academy was founded by an alumna of Murray Edwards, and we are delighted to have several Murray Edwards students join us each year.

Below, we have summarised the blog posts from EduCampers at Murray Edwards College discussing their experiences and top tips for the program.

She then travelled across China, visiting Xi'an, Shanghai, Tongli and Suzhou. Read more about her experiences here.
