Bridging the gap between school and college/university
Undergraduate educational tours are great for broadening the mind and giving students opportunities to see and visit places and things that they would not normally see. Many school leavers may not have travelled much beyond the borders of their home country. Touring to distant cities or abroad opens their eyes to new horizons and gives them more of a world view before embarking on their early university years. Entering a different environment or culture to gain a new perspective can develop students’ understanding of their place in the community and help them to understand and openly accept differences in others.
Bridge the gap between education and industry
Although students will have taken their first steps along the path for their vocational training by the time they are at university, the chance to travel to visit venues associated with their chosen career will be greatly illuminating for them. Undergraduate educational tours to investigate further aspects of an industry help promote a greater understanding and a feeling of reality that are difficult to convey within the limits of the lecture hall. In particular, those students who are visual learners as opposed to audio learners will benefit from this type of exposure. It is an interactive way to learn, and the experience tends to be more meaningful and long-lasting.
Affordable tailor-made packages for your situation
Putting a tour company in charge of your itinerary is a wise choice. Their experience enables them to offer you great value, and they are ultimately excellent time and money savers. They are specialists in the area of educational tours, whether these are undergraduate, graduate, alumni groups, special interest groups or sports groups. Educational tour companies such as Anglo Educational Tours (# http://angloeducationaltours.com/study-level/undergraduate/) will customise a tour to your requirements, whether it’s in London, the UK or Europe.
Connections are vital in this situation and these touring companies have plenty of them. This enables them to organise excellent guided tours of venues to be visited, a selection of hotels to stay in that match your budget and the mode of transport to be undertaken. Every detail is taken care of so you can enjoy a successful trip. Specialist guides can be the secret to a great tour as they augment the knowledge that students have gained in the lecture theatre and may be able to offer a different viewpoint that can trigger further understanding.
Educational tours can open up new horizons for undergraduates in order to help them learn about and focus on their chosen channel of studies. Allowing a touring agency to organise your trip takes the pressure off of tutors, allowing them to concentrate on their own areas of expertise.
