GLOBAL STUDY TOURS -GST

"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page." Augustine of Hippo

At Learning Trails, we believe that the future of the world is within the hearts, minds and thoughts of the young people. By instilling a sense of cross cultural understanding, tolerance, compassion and responsibility in them, the future will become much brighter for all of us. Global study tours are a big pathway to global education, and we are happy to help students in this.

Global Study Tours are designed for School students across the world to gain international travel experience with specific learning goals.  The learning goals of each study tour vary according to the learning requirements of the schools and students.  Global Study Tours emphasize experiential learning and offer both group and self-directed activities that enable students to explore different countries, cultures, and people.

We have put together an array of programs that serve a full spectrum range of personal interests, preferences and career choices to let them enjoy an unforgettable educational trip instead of just taking photos with the landmark or scenery.

Global Study Tours are designed to be both fun and educational.  We encourage students to enjoy the local cuisine, socialize freely, and arrange for local recreational and cultural activities of the countries that we visit.  This is to foster global awareness and cultural understanding among participating students. These experiences enable students to develop life skills that are useful in multicultural environments and provide students with opportunities to develop lifelong, enjoyable memories and a love of travel and adventure.
