The studies are rigorous; the service is substantive. By integrating formal study with service to the local community in an intercultural/international setting, students find their learning takes on greater depth and meaning. Subjects studied are diverse and varied and service work falls under many sectors. Most programmes include social work, education, health services and development work. What is included in programme fees differs by programme.
