Scope of our services
At DIALOG we offer a complete, end-to-end academic study tour service.
That means we manage every aspect of your tour, from concept and planning to flawless execution. Once we agree on a focus and agenda we draw on our extensive network of global partnerships with government bodies, academic institutions and private companies to arrange the knowledge exchange sessions and practical visits that give your students the chance to see theory put into action.
We then enhance that core itinerary with a range of social and cultural activities that put their learnings into context, facilitate networking, and build long-lasting, collaborative relationships.
Once tour design is complete we also handle all the practical arrangements for your group, including international and local travel, accommodation, visa applications and insurance. If needed, we can also provide professional interpretation services.
You will be assigned a single project manager to organise every aspect of your tour. They will keep in close communication with you and your students during the planning stages and throughout the trip.
Once the tour is underway we also provide an on-the-scene learning facilitator to ensure that every aspect of the trip runs smoothly and to schedule. The facilitator’s role is to take care of all the local logistics, troubleshoot any issues that arise on the ground, and help your students with any additional needs or requests that arise during the tour.

One of the most powerful benefits of an international study tour is the chance to build lasting relationships with other students and business experts across the world. As part of every tour we provide valuable opportunities for students to connect with and learn from both dynamic local business leaders and leading academic experts.

We can also organise short-term consulting opportunities and cooperative practical projects between your students and their international counterparts.
