Immersive, interactive and intellectual

I can only speak on behalf of the Maasai Mara aspect of the course. The material stimulating academically and offered a great introduction into the life of field-Biologist/researchers. The content was able to challenge my ideals and without giving too much away, was able to change my perspectives on areas of conservation that I thought I was immovable on. It was great to be immersed in such rich culture whilst sharing the experience with a range of international students with a range of different perspectives on the world. Kenya is a beautiful country with wonderful people offering an all-around enriching experience.

What would you improve about this program?
I would like to see more time in the Maasai Mara as the area is so unique, multifaceted and complex to even begin to comprehend.

Remarkable experience

This was my first time visiting the African continent, and I can say that I am very pleased to have come as a learner than simply a tourist. The whole experience with EDU tours has given me a completely new perspective on a new culture and system of beliefs. I would thoroughly recommend this programme to anyone who wants an immersive and new learning journey, not just in terms of academia, but also personal development.
