Field Trips

1

Field trips can occur over one afternoon or last for several weeks. They provide students with exciting and engaging opportunities to put into use the knowledge acquired during their studies. During a field trip, students naturally combine work with pleasure as they engage in meaningful ways with every day realities through the lenses of their discipline. Many Arts courses have a rich tradition of organising field trips around the world, such as the U.S.A., Europe, Africa as well as Asian destinations. Some of the opportunities are listed below:
