Health & Social Care University Tour to Budapest

Example study tour 

 

Budapest provides a fascinating health and social care destination for your students to explore different healthcare systems in Europe.  Hungary operates with a tax-funded universal healthcare system and its well developed and internationally acclaimed practices have resulted in increased life expectancy for the country's inhabitants.

One of our university customers required a group travel package to allow their students to perform a critical analysis of international perspectives on health and social care. StudyLink created a 5-day study tour package to Budapest, allowing their students to cover global health and social care issues and approaches, while identifying factors that influence the delivery of healthcare in the country.
