Join us for 4 days and learn how Voyager partner with Amsterdam University College to create the perfect science-focused school trip.
The beautiful and vibrant city of Amsterdam is rich in history and culture, and is the epitome of a modern metropolis, bustling with tourists and tolerant but happy locals, year round.
What may not spring to mind about the Dutch capital is that it is a renowned centre of scientific endeavour and research.
Voyager School Travel have partnered with Amsterdam University College to create a superb Science tour where the emphasis is firmly on collaborative learning. AUC offers a liberal arts and sciences programme to its students with the emphasis focusing on acquiring academic skills, knowledge and intellectual tools that will help students be successful in any career they choose.
