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.

Study tours will develop your knowledge and practical skills, give you something to enhance your resume and you can possibly receive credit towards your ECU degree.

For information regarding available programs, please see list below.

Please note, under some circumstances we may be required to change the application deadline for the tour. To avoid disappointment, we recommend submitting your application as soon as you can.
