WorldStrides to Offer Short-Term International Study Abroad Trips for Students

By Uloop Staff on April 12, 2022

WorldStrides, the leader in educational travel experiences, has created a brand new set of condensed itineraries for students to experience Europe, Asia and other popular destinations. Break Escapes trips are 7-10 day adventures led by local tour guides and are reinventing the overseas study abroad experience, providing insider access to the worlds’ top destinations, according to a recent press release.

“We designed BreakEscapes to occur during winter, summer, and spring breaks to cater to students who want an international experience and still want to have time for a full semester on campus or an internship during their scheduled breaks from school,” said Brian DeMoss, head of higher education marketing at WorldStrides. WorldStrides listened to feedback from their student travelers who have missed out on so much the last two years, both studying abroad and through on-campus living, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Destinations for Break Escapes include Spain (Madrid & Barcelona), England (London), Costa Rica (San Jose & Tortuga Island), Fiji (Naviti & Beachcomber), Australia (Sydney & Cairns), Morocco (Fez & Merzouga), France (Paris), and Thailand (Chiang Mai & Krabi).

Break Escapes is different from other study abroad experiences – each trip is led by a local guide, familiar with each destination inside and out. Students will also stay in three- or four-star hotels rather than a hostel. Students can refer their friends, classmates and peers on campus for a reduced rate, and can even request the same roommate(s) for the duration of their trip. The fee for each seven-day, six-night adventure varies by location, but each includes premium hotel accommodations each night, most meals, exclusive cultural excursions led by local guides, and so much more. Students are responsible for their own roundtrip airfare. The deadline to apply is Sunday, May 1, 2022.
