Study Tours is a ‘boutique’ educational and cultural immersion program, designed for school groups that enjoy a strong reputation of excellence world-wide, with most groups re-booking return visits.

Short-term programs (groups of 15-25 students) that include class integration and tailor-made timetabling.

The program duration is a short course of study generally ranging from one to eight weeks. Students participating in this program can engage in a range of classroom immersion, pastoral care, TESOL, extra-curricular, cultural programs and excursions. The program allows for international students to experience first-hand the culture, language and style of learning within an Australian school.

The program is designed for students to actively engage in a range of curriculum and pastoral care programs where the learning is dynamic, interactive and innovative.

"Our study tours offer international students a taste of what a first-class education in Australia would be like. Most visitors conclude their time lamenting that it is over and vowing to return again one day soon!"
