Forthcoming study tours, clinical placements and practicums

Taking part in a study tour is a great way to do something out of the ordinary and immerse yourself in an enriching cultural experience.

You’ll also develop your knowledge and practical skills while possibly receiving credit towards your ECU degree – and give you something to enhance your resume.

For information regarding available programs, please see list below.

Community Work and Cultural Development Study Tour

ECU undergraduate students have the opportunity to participate in a two-week study tour to Bhutan, focused on community work and cultural development in a country that strives for Gross National Happiness. The group will interact with such agencies as the National Commission for Woman and Children and the Bhutan Youth Development Fund to understand the impact of modernisation on the richly traditionalistic culture. They will also focus on the cultural context of social issues relevant to their studies at the Royal University of Bhutan, Samtse College, with local buddies to guide the experience.  Students will also take in some of the significant cultural sights of the country, rounding out the two-week experience and a magical opportunity.

This tour will attract credit to your degree through the (ISS3101) International Special Project or (SAH2100) Cross Cultural Knowledge and Global Citizenship unit. Eligible students will receive $3,000 to assist with their program costs and there are 15 funded places available.
