Design for Film & Television University Tour to Rome

Example study tour 

Created for Nottingham Trent University


Nottingham Trent University required a group travel package to Italy’s capital where students could gain inspiration and primary research for their design projects and modules.

StudyLink created a 5-day study tour package to Rome, enabling students to explore different artistic stimulation and visit one of Europe’s most influential and dynamic film studios which has an outstanding repertoire of achievements within the film industry.
