Cartoon & Comic Arts University Tour to London
Example study tour
Created for Staffordshire University
Staffordshire University required a group travel package to facilitate a visit to MCM Comic Con in London, where students could participate in Cosplay and observe the styles and techniques used by comic creators, writers and artists.
StudyLink created a 3-day study tour package to London, enabling students to expand their modern pop culture portfolio by inspiring creativity, strengthening communication skills and testing a selection of tools used to design comic art.
