They provide groups of overseas students with an exciting opportunity to gain new skills and knowledge through integrated lessons with local students, English as an Additional Language (EAL) classes, and excursions tailored to their interests. Study tour themes may include science and technology, performing and visual arts, leadership, and sport.

Short-term study tours are packed with new experiences, friends and fun. Victoria's world-class education system encourages students to become life-long learners, and experiencing another culture helps students to develop intercultural understanding.
