Guided Educational Travel Programs

DISCOVER the pleasures of learning while you explore fascinating and spectacular areas of the world in the company of a small group of fellow travelers.

If you:

...then Travel Study will appeal to you!

Our travel study programs, in cooperation with academic departments, offer educational travel to destinations around the globe. Itineraries are chosen carefully by academic guides, who share their knowledge of and enthusiasm for the destinations. Each tour is preceded by a series of classes where you'll learn about the tour's focus, get answers to all your practical questions and meet your travel companions.

Our tours offer a safe and comprehensive way to explore history, culture, nature and the arts through visits to well-known sites and those not usually available to travellers. They are open to everyone: you don't need a prerequisite for this university program!

We make all the arrangements and even take care of tipping the guides and drivers while on tour.
