Student Trips to the USA

With its mammoth size and global pulling power, a visit to the USA is a must for any international study trip. The US is almost as large as the whole of Europe, and with many states being larger than the whole of the UK; this ensures that a visit to a different state can be as exhilarating as visiting an entirely different country. From buzzing cities and tourist hotspots like New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles to the capital of world politics in Washington DC, the US has an enduring and exciting appeal.

Our most popular destination for a study tour in the US is undoubtedly New York City. This incredible city is known for being vibrant, fast-paced and is always at the forefront of finance, fashion and all forms of art.  Iconic landmarks such as the Statue of Liberty, Empire State Building and Central Park feature on any visitors’ must-see attractions list.

A college trip to Washington is just a coach trip away from New York. With the political and historical relevance of this city, it’s great for a standalone or multi-centre educational visit. This capital city is home to an array of monuments and museums; your students may get to see the declaration of independence or stand on Lincoln’s Memorial steps, for a sense of standing in the steps of US history.

On the West Coast, you’ve got Los Angeles College Trips, otherwise known as the City of Angels or La La Land. This city is world-renowned for being the home of Hollywood and makes for an interesting visit particularly for students of film, media studies and performing arts. Follow in the footsteps of Hollywood Greats, giving your students an inspirational visit with memories to last a lifetime. 

Whatever your subject, a student visit to the USA will offer an unrivalled opportunity to discover more about the world’s most influential superpower.
