Health & Social Care University Tour to Amsterdam
Example study tour
Created for The University of Lincoln
The University of Lincoln required a group travel package where students could develop knowledge, skills and values required to take on many of the new and emerging responsibilities within a range of care sectors.
StudyLink created a 4-day study tour package to Amsterdam, enabling students to explore operations and practices of health and social care in a different country under European laws, and compare methods to assist with developing skills.
