For many students, an overseas school tour is a once in a lifetime opportunity. Students venture into the unfamiliar and are intellectually stimulated through a range of unique cultural, educational and adventure activities. Students can actually see and explore the places they have learned about in the classroom. The personal and academic benefits they gain are both immediate and long-term.
Our international programs are designed by experts, to take students on a journey of learning that imparts a sense of wonder and leads to genuine educational outcomes.
The hallmarks of WorldStrides International programs:
They’re built by educators
Education is at the core of what we do. Our dedicated Curriculum and Academics team are experts in on-tour education. They’ve fine-tuned our unique philosophy of learning through exploration and active participation, which underpins all WorldStrides programs. This ensures students are challenged to think critically through a range of experiences and develop intellectually and personally. We reinforce on-tour learnings through easy to understand educational content and resources tailored for every destination and every stage of development.
They feature interactive curriculum-linked activities
We work with leading institutions and attractions around the globe who offer unique and interactive experiences that leverage natural curiosity and experiential learning. Not only are they fun and engaging, but they deliver the learning objectives of the curriculum. We’ll find the perfect workshops, classes, guided tours and re-enactments that align with your classroom curriculum. Whether students are following the footsteps of Australian soldiers in WWI uniforms or getting creative in design workshops at world-class museums, an international tour offers diverse opportunities to maximise learning outcomes.
They offer authentic cultural experiences
Being immersed in another culture is an eye-opening experience for students. Stereotypes are challenged and social norms can be contrasted against those of a dramatically different community. In experiencing a new and unfamiliar way of living, students emerge as true global citizens with an enriched intercultural understanding and sense of identity.
WorldStrides programs take students on an inspiring journey of discoveries that deliver curriculum-linked educational outcomes. Through hands-on experiences and access to world-class educational resources, students are challenged and inspired to chart their own course of learning.
