What’s on: future study tours

Study tours are organised by third-party fully bonded travel agents, carefully selected by our Tours Coordinator. We arrange visits to UK and European destinations which offer participants interesting cultural experiences in a relaxed environment accompanied by experts in their field. Tours vary in length (usually three to seven days).

Tours are for members only; costs are provided with each tour itinerary.
