Study Trips

The Centre for Advanced Studies in the Humanities organizes each semester a study travel programme which is considered an integral aspect of the Study Abroad Programme.

Each destination includes aspects of education, tourism, and fun. Every study trip envisages meetings/seminars with local experts focusing on the literary, cultural, historical, social, and political characterstics and features that the study trip specifically targets. If the study trip destination is to a larger city that contains a university, lectures with professors of the particular university and meetings with local student groups are arranged.

The costs of travel and accommodation of one study trip, to be determined by CASH, are included in the Study Abroad Programme's tuition fee. All other costs and the costs of all other study trips are borne by the student.
