Important Dates

There are no events coming up in the next week.

Philosophy

“An international field study can be defined as an educational trip to a national or international destination for observing and/or making research relevant to the curriculum  of the participants. “In  this  perspective, these  trips  represent a widely regarded and useful delivery mechanism for  such  enriching  educational  experience and  competencies, where students can learn via  firsthand experiences.  This makes  the international field study approach one of the “optimal” models for positive learning outcomes as long as it is linked with the project started in the classroom and continued after the return from the trip.”
