Field Schools

Field schools allow you to have an immersive experience while travelling and studying with other students and faculty leads. Because field schools are typically much shorter than exchanges (usually 3 to 5 weeks), the cost of participation is usually significantly less than an exchange.

It’s hard to put into words how extraordinary an experience it was. Anyone who has the opportunity to do a field school should do it. You learn so much, not just about another culture, but about yourself. It was life changing.
Raeanne Akers, NIC Social Services diploma student, who travelled to the Philippines with one of NIC’s field school opportunities.
