Thank you for submitting your feedback
We will visit five contrasting university campuses, where site visits and presentations on strategic approaches to accommodation, residence life, catering, retail and sport will spark ideas and inspiration to take back to your university. There is time to get to know other tour participants and free time to explore the historic city of Edinburgh, where you'll be based.
Take the full tour including the CUBO Summer Conference, or join the study tour only.
"I learned a lot, am routinely applying lessons learned, and thinking about the different expectations international students have when they arrive on my campus. Everyone should go on a study tour at least once."
Linda Kasper, University of South Florida.
