What is a study tour?
A study tour is a unique travel experience that combines learning with travelling. The area of study that you are interested in exploring will determine how the tour is organized. For example, tours focusing on business study will see you visiting international corporations to learn directly from global experts. Art and architecture tours will see you travel with experts in their field and will give you the opportunity to explore the world’s architectural icons first hand whilst getting to meet and talk with international architects.
How is a study tour different from a picnic?
A study tour is based on the premise of learning while travelling. Whilst we certainly put in some leisure time on your tour, but the primary focus is definitely on learning. You will be accompanied by experts in your field and the focus of the tour will be on learning.
What type of study tours does VIBGYOR club offers?
VIBGYOR club organizes study tours across a broad range of disciplines, from business, architecture, film, engineering, health sciences and hospitality, to name a few. The academic content of these tours can either be put together by you or we can organize it for you in conjunction with our in house academic experts.
We also have a series of ready-made study tours available for University students, secondary students, professionals, corporates and groups of individuals who may be interested in a specific subject area that they are seeking to expand their knowledge of.
How can a student turn the study tour into a real job?
A number of our study tour participants involve themselves in either an internship or a live project at the end of the study tour. Both give the student a chance to work with a real organization but at the same time gives the organization a real opportunity to see what kind of fit the student would be in their organization. Corporate internships and consulting projects open up real possibilities of work culture and professional networks.
Are there any cost overruns?
The simple answer is ‘no’. The costing of all programs is calculated and expressed in the form of a quote well before the program commences. Travel, accommodation, ground support, breakfasts, lunches, dinners and necessary taxes are all included.
What kind of accommodation do you provide?
Our stay options are selected based on quality, cleanliness, location and suitability. Hotel rooms are on sharing basis. Arrangement of girls and boys rooms is generally kept separately. In custom made tours, accommodation will be based on your budget, but even if working on a tight budget we will never compromise on quality and will endeavor to locate hotels that are well positioned to meet all of our travel needs.
How many meals will be provided during the tour?
Pure vegetarian Indian food is generally available for all the meals. We provide three meals a day – breakfast, lunch and dinner. We recommend that you also carry some light snacks from home in case you feel hungry at odd hours.
What luggage should I bring?
We strongly recommend that the students travel light. Our advice is to pack smart and bring as little as possible. Students will have to carry their own bags. Our team also sends separate emails to all the participants informing about the list of necessary items.
If you require any other information or have any questions about anything, please feel free to contact us by email or phone call. We would be happy to answer.
