Study Tours at The University of Melbourne

Students Explore Australia has been organizing study tour programs in Australia for middle school and high school students for years. The content and activities during the tour are designed to meet course objectives and specific learning outcomes based on your class syllabus.

Students learn new things and improve social skills while traveling to our different partnering universities, such as The University of Melbourne (UM). Study tours will introduce them to a new environment and learning happens both inside and outside the classroom setting.

Exploring Australian Culture

Students Explore Australia thinks outside the box by delivering study tour programs that widen the students’ horizons on educational and cultural knowledge. The programs encapsulate cultural activities that they can do, sightseeing famous spots in Victoria and industry visits. We arrange the itinerary to allow students to appreciate the city like locals and experience the unique Australian culture, that will follow the students for a lifetime.

Making the Best Higher Education Choice for You

Aside from making memories in a new place with new people, study tours play an essential role in helping students make the right choice for their education pathway. Experiencing study life firsthand is an excellent opportunity to make that decision. Students’ outlook broadens as they can partner up with a local Australian student for the week and take classes as if they were a local student. Not only are they getting to know the course their buddies are taking, but they are also honing their social skills and learning by doing it.

Finding Suitable Long-Term Housing Accommodation

For your study tour, students’ accommodation is flexible to the group’s preferences. If the student is considering studying at an Australian university, we can take the group to visit potential long-term housing options for you. We can arrange visits to university accommodation and their residential colleges. You can also take a look around private accommodation providers, hostels and share houses. It is wise to visit during the tour and get a feel for the place before deciding to make an informed decision.

Experiential Learning For The Student

Teaching the students about a country’s lifestyle is one thing, but letting them experience it first-hand is different and more exciting. Students Explore Australia allows students to understand Australian culture by involving them personally. The itineraries include activities and sightseeing for your students. Activities include wandering through laneways, going to wildlife parks to cuddle koalas and feed kangaroos, discovering Victoria’s history and getting sporty at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. We can even drive along the Great Ocean Road. Our goal is to make these activities as engaging and exciting as possible for students.
