EF Educational Tours - Student Tours and Educational Travel
EF's educational philosophy is simple: the best way to help students gain new perspectives and build skills for the future is through experiential learning. As an accredited institution, EF partners with educators across the world to create global education programs that blend classroom, digital and experiential learning for students. Tour Directors undergo extensive training to make sure they are equipped to manage challenging situations and have a direct line to EF offices both locally and globally for added support. Students learn on a deeper level when what you’re teaching connects to their own lives. Students are given the opportunity to reflect on what they have learned through a post-tour project that gives even more meaning to travel. That can even earn them academic credit.
