The world as our classroom


“5 destinations, 22 703 kilometres of distance travelled, 31 hours on airplanes, 3 different time zones, 2 hotels, 1 hostel, 14 days and 1 000 unforgettable moments.” 

"Thirty Master students with one common mission 'To make the world their classroom', and that was exactly what we did throughout our Study Tour to the Middle East and Asia." (MCI Tourism MA student).

"It was great to explore the cultural diversity between Europe, Middle East & Asia. I personally, developed more cultural awareness. Especially seeing, interpreting and evaluating things in a different way. This is necessary for business success in today’s globalised business World. Thank you so much for this experience!" (MCI Tourism MA student)

An often-quoted saying from Confucius states “I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.” Following this thought, it is hoped that study tours provide not only memorable experiences, but also sustainable learning outcomes. The organisation of a study tour relies on high-quality contacts in different destinations. THE-ICE, with its strong network of excellent tourism universities fosters such relationships and enables higher education institutions to offer such programs.
