Student Study Tour

Friday, 24th of February 2017 (00:00 – 00:00) @ ILAS

NUI Galway students (undergraduates and postgraduates) are invited to apply to take part in the Europe Engage Service Learning Student Study Tour which will take place from the 5th to the 18th of June 2017 in Galway.

Service Learning is a teaching approach that encourages students to learn and explore issues vital to society inside and outside the classroom and instil a sense of social responsibility and civic awareness in students. During this tour, 12 students from different countries across Europe will spend two weeks learning about Service Learning with peers from different cultures and engage and learn with their communities. Students will also attend an International Symposium on Service Learning free of charge and attend various social events during the two week period.

Applications are now open for students from NUI Galway to apply to take part in this study tour.

Please contact Áine Gallagher aine.a.gallagher@nuigalway.ie if you have any queries or require any further information.

Close of applications is 24th February 2017.
