Discover the impact of travel on students

Here's what 1,432 U.S. teachers had to say about the social impact of travel on students in response to a study conducted by StudentMarketing for the Student & Youth Travel Association:

  • 60% increased their willingness to know, learn and explore
  • 60% desired to travel more
  • 56% increased their independence, self-esteem and confidence
  • 55% were more intellectually curious
  • 52% increased their tolerance of other cultures and ethnicities

Every year, we team up with educators and parents to help over 1 million students experience our educational travel programs from Barcelona to Shanghai—transforming the way they look at themselves and the world. When travelers return home, the souvenirs they bring back are the skills and attitudes they need for their next steps—in school, their careers, and the world beyond.

Even if you don't win a free educational tour, we can still make your dream trip a reality. Your spot is free when you enroll at least six students, and they all travel at the guaranteed lowest price.

Meet our keynote speaker

EF is accredited, just like your child's school. That means students can earn academic credit by completing coursework before, during and after their tour.

Our educational philosophy is simple: the best way to help students gain new perspectives and build skills for the future is through experiential learning. We create programs that blend classroom and experiential learning together. This allows us to meet the same rigorous standards of schools like your child's and ensure students gain valuable experiences that will transform the way they look at the world.
