Study tours

Study tours run for 2-3 weeks and offer students the amazing opportunity of combining study and cultural immersion all whilst gaining credit towards their degree. As the name suggests, on a faculty led study tour students will be guided by academics and provide opportunities otherwise out of reach for an independent traveller.

Please note that study tour units may not run each year. Enrolment is always subject to a selection process and approval by the Unit Chair as places are limited. Therefore students should always identify another unit as an alternative to a study tour unit when planning their course or major.
