Sneak Peek #2 - Busan

In week 2 of the Study Tour Shift Sneak Peeks, we will take a look at what awaits the participants in our second and final destination of South Korea; Busan. 

Sneak Peek #1 - Seoul

by Sytse on August 6th, 2018 in Blogs

Study Tour Shift is drawing ever nearer. In fact, in less than seven weeks from now, we will already be in South Korea. The study tour participants have spent much of their time preparing for the study tour by doing their Theme Course research assignments and contract research assignments at various companies throughout the Netherlands. However, while they have spent a lot of time preparing for the study tour, they don’t really have an idea of what exactly they will be experiencing during those three weeks abroad. In that light, we have decided to give five sneak peeks into each of the five cities that we will be visiting during the study tour, chronologically. 

In the first week of these sneak peeks, we will shed some light on the activities that will be undertaken while we are in the first destination; Seoul.
