All of our Study Tours are managed and guided by our in-country operations team. You will be assigned local group leaders that shall provide 24/7 support and be by your side each day, with further assistance from our Regional Manager and Programs Manager.
We provide a wide range of services for both university staff and students. Whether that is pre-departure, during program delivery and after students return home.
Our aim is for every student to build an understanding and connection with Fiji, whilst being part of a study tour program, which has long term positive impact for Fiji’s future.
Our programs are built upon sustainable partnerships with organisations in Fiji and are designed under our formal agreements with Fijian Ministries.
As a registered local organisation, we invest in local staff, job creation and training; we add capacity to our partner organisations and expand the skills of Fijian university students and unemployed youth through global collaboration, courses and professional experience.
Through the Think Pacific Foundation, we support local Fijian charities and communities to achieve sustainable development goals under the guidance of Fiji’s National Development Plan.
