A study trip is a multiple week-long trip to a faraway country together with a group of students from Creative Technology and Interaction Technology who are joined by a few staff members of the programmes. The focus around such a trip is education, research and expanding the worldview of the students. During the trip a lot of companies are visited to build relationships between these companies and the students, the study programmes and the UT. Not only will the students see how these companies operate in their field of business, but also how this can be tied into what research has been conducted prior to the trip.
What work is involved?
To get to that point preparations have to be made. Foundation ICE does this together with the participants, mainly by committee work. As a participant, you do committee work that helps the organisation for the whole trip. Committees like the Case Coordination, Corporate Contact, Corporate Identity, Education and Logistics ensures that this trip can take place.
As this is a study trip you can earn ECs as well. The course is centred around a theme that we’ll hopefully explore more during our trip as well. We want to deepen our knowledge around this theme and for the participants to broaden their horizon in an internationally oriented academic environment.
Finally, to help with funding this trip we will do so-called casework. This casework will be with a Dutch company for a specific job, see it as a side-job. Not only does this help in earning money for the trip, but it can also be a good opportunity to build a connection with a company and get some job experience!
What are the benefits of a studytrip?
- Amazing trip!
- Committee experience
- Work experience through casework
- Interesting courses and extra ECs (to be used instead of an elective in M11)
- Contact with companies (in NL and on our destination)
