What happened during the Expedition?

The June 2023 expedition brought STEM students from the UK’s University of Exeter to Toulouse, France, to address challenges for a diverse range of organisations.

With inspirational talks, skills workshops, career insights, networking sessions and creative teamwork supported by world-class coaches, participants gained essential workplace skills and discovered a range of industries and career paths to hit the ground running on their career-search.

Over the course of six days onsite in Toulouse, students worked together with other engaged students in multidisciplinary, international and intercultural teams to address a real business challenge and make a difference with their ideas. 


We are so grateful to the challenge owners, speakers, coaches, jury and student buddies from ‘Airbus GEN A’ and students from ENSEEIHT Toulouse without whom the experience could not happen.
