Group Flights, Trips and Excursions
Access to Low Airfares and Discounted Group Flights
For the majority of programs, we offer a group flight on Qantas Airways. More than 90% of our students opt for this flight and take advantage of savings up to $800 off fares available direct from the airlines.
Study Australia and Study New Zealand offer special pre-semester trips for those adventure-loving students looking to jumpstart their travel experiences before classes start. These trips are generally one-week in length, and are organized by Study Australia staff members, but utilize professional local guides to insure your safety and cultural immersion. Past destinations include the Fiji Islands, the South Island of New Zealand, and a trip to the beautiful Great Barrier Reef.
Excursions and Semester Travel
Studying abroad in the Asia Pacific is a great base to explore the many unique countries that make up the Pacific Rim. Taking advantage of this ideal location, we offer organized excursions throughout Australia, New Zealand, Thailand, Cambodia, China and Fiji and provide guidance to students who choose to discover Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia and other Pacific Island destinations such as Tahiti or the Cook Islands.
Our exclusive excursions, generally one-week in length, are easy and convenient ways to travel around the Pacific Rim. Organized by our staff members and using professional local guides to insure your safety and cultural immersion, these excursions provide excellent value. We design our excursions around academic calendars, thereby ensuring that students can explore the Pacific Rim without interference with classes or campus life. Recent excursions include the Fiji Islands, the South Island of New Zealand, the beautiful Great Barrier Reef, Spring Break in Thailand and an insider's look at Melbourne for our Australia and New Zealand participants. And an excursion to Inner Mongolia for our China participants.
Advantages of our Excursions
We coordinate all excursions, which are priced to our costs to ensure our students receive tremendous value, typically a savings of 30%.
All excursions revolve around the academic calendar, allowing students to travel without interference with classes or campus life.
One long trip can be less expensive and more convenient than multiple last-minute weekend trips because costs are fixed and surprise expenditures are less likely.
While Australia and New Zealand are safe countries for young travelers, a guided tour is a great way to start the semester. After participating in one of these guided tours, students will be better prepared to plan and execute their own adventures during the semester.
Experienced staff and guides provide unique insights into the local culture and help ensure safety and enjoyment for all participants.
In addition, our Resident Directors organize other local activities just for our participants. Past examples have included rugby/football game outings, a trip to the Commonwealth Games, a trip to the Australian Open, International Comedy Festivals, and more!
Travel Arrangements and Advice
Not only do we offer a special optional group flight to kick off your study abroad adventure, but we also will put you in touch with the most reputable travel vendors for travel within the Pacific Rim region. In addition, our staff have studied, traveled, or lived in the region and can offer unique advice before you depart.
