Our International Tours for school and university groups are all-inclusive, affordable and fully customised.

Environmental Programs concentrate on immersion and adventure in exceptional natural environments. They allow contextual exploration of Environmental Management principles and deliver a strong conservation message.

Tourism Programs focus on the Tourism Industry including drivers, challenges and innovations. They investigate major tourist attractions from an economic and environmental perspective to evaluate the sustainability of current operations.

Design Technology Programs investigate Sustainable Development in the context of megacities like London and Paris. They showcase innovations in architecture, agriculture and tourism.

Language Programs emphasise complete immersion in a chosen language and culture. Students are accommodated in a homestay arrangement with excursions to famous landmarks. These programs are suitable for preliminary and advanced learners.
