Study Tours

International Study Tours

The Study Tour Program is designed to provide an enjoyable educational program for International Students. Study Tours give students the opportunity to participate and experience Australian culture and outdoor activities. Through involvement in a Study Tour, young people learn more about the history, culture and values of South Australia!

Adelaide is a beautiful city and is the capital of South Australia. It is often referred to as the ‘Educational Capital of Australia’ because it provides a quiet, safe and secure environment for International Students while they engage with a high-quality education in the city. Adelaide is a relatively small city situated between pristine sandy beaches and the beautiful Mt. Lofty Ranges with easy access to a modern international airport.

Accommodation:

Study Tour students are usually placed in Homestay accommodation where they are under the care of host Australian families. This offers a good opportunity for students to experience the Australian lifestyle with the Host Family through such things as tasting Australian food, enjoying beach activities and sharing family life. It is an ideal way for students to develop their English language skills, expand their social network, be more independent and to meet people from all around the world.

Study Tour activities include:

  • English language classes

In an AIS Study Tour, students practice commonly used English language that allows them to appreciate and immerse in a local Australian community including using Aussie slang words such as “G’day” a term used when greeting another person.

  • Local School Visit

Local school visits give students an opportunity to look at the facilities of local schools in South Australia.

Sometimes, school immersion can be arranged, allowing students the opportunity to spend a day or half-a-day in a school classroom activity.

  • Excursions include:

A tour of the city of Adelaide, including a visit to the South Australian Museum

Australian wildlife parks, including feeding Kangaroos and cuddling a Koala

Visiting the pristine shores of Glenelg Beach

Going behind the scenes to see how confectioners use their artisan skills to create delicious handmade chocolates at Adelaide’s own ‘Haigh’s Chocolate factory’.
