Study abroad, simplified.

Within EF’s College Study Tours division, our sole focus is on short-term, faculty-led study abroad programs, all academic and culturally blended by design. Through our global networks and close collaboration with educators, we build high-quality and sustainable programs that give as many students as possible access to life-changing experiences. We believe that:

  • We all learn better through experience.

  • Travel is an educational platform to fuel lifelong growth.

  • Global competencies are crucial in today’s world.

  • Travel can positively impact students in just 10 to 14 days.
