UK Study Tour

CUBO Study Tour

The annual CUBO Study Tour is a wonderful opportunity to see how UK universities operate their campus and commercial services and to attend the CUBO Summer Conference. 


Due to Covid-19, there will be no CUBO Study Tour in 2020. The Emerald Isle Study Tour will take place in 2021. Details will be posted here in due course.


ā€œIā€™m so glad I participated in the study tour and attended CUBO. 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, and more often is better.ā€

Linda Kasper, Executive Director of Residential Education, University of South Florida

The 5th International Study Tour

2021 - The Emerald Isle

The Emerald Isle study tour will take you on a journey of discovery from Dublin to Belfast, visiting leading universities in Ireland and Northern Ireland.

We spend two days in Dublin before travelling north through Ireland and across the border to to visit more universities including Queen's University Belfast. You'll gain an in-depth insight into the student experience, residence life initiatives, as well as behind-the-scenes looks at accommodation and catering. A carefully designed social programme brings you the highlights of these historic cities and plenty of networking with colleagues from other international institutions. Then join the CUBO Summer Conference in Belfast, meeting senior campus and commercial services professionals from universities across the UK and Ireland for their annual conference, which has the theme of IMPACT and includes the 2021 CUBO Awards!

The tour is open to colleagues from international universities with responsibility for accommodation, hospitality and dining, as well as private student accommodation providers seeking insights and inspiration from universities. It provides a unique glimpse into the UK and Ireland's higher education sector and will enhance your understanding of the differing needs and expectations of international students when they arrive at your campus.
