Sustainable Events University Tour to Cornwall

Example study tour 

Created for Buckinghamshire New University

 

Buckinghamshire New University required a group travel package to facilitate a visit to the Eden Project in Cornwall, where Sustainability Management students could gain practical experience of a live project. 


StudyLink created a 4-day study tour package to Cornwall, enabling students to benefit from the Eden Project’s experiential learning programmes, tailored workshops and behind-the-scenes tours designed to meet the students’ learning objectives.
