Group Leader
The Learning Caravan Pte Ltd will assign a study group leader to take charge of learning activities and school visits.

Registered participants will receive further details before the start of the study tour.



Travelling and Accommodation
Participants will make their own travel arrangements from their own home country to the host country, accommodation choice and leisure activities during their stay in the host country.  The participants are responsible for their own travel to the host country and during their leisure time, leisure activities, meals, well as their accommodation.

Local Travel Arrangements
The Learning Caravan will arrange for the group to travel together to the host centres. The group leader will meet with the participants at a location in the city area. Mode of transport for previous study groups had been via public transport - tram, train or bus. Participants need to purchase a local travel card for group travel to the host centres.


The choice of transport mode is dependent on the travel route to the host centres. Some walking is required.
