Benefits of an industry study tour

  • develop a broad range of employability skills and attributes that are particularly valuable in a globalised economy
  • understand international professional practice in your discipline

  • gain an insight into another culture.

Industry study tours last from 15 to 21 days. They are normally taken in summer and winter term breaks.
