As the world becomes increasingly interconnected, global education is more important than ever. Together with educators worldwide, EF Tours provide experiences that teach critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration and global competence.
EF Tours provides people everywhere the opportunity to participate in their mission of "opening the world through education" through their Three Pillars of Learning:
1. Cultural Experiences: EF educational travel and cultural exchange programs provide international and domestic travel experiences, hands-on learning and lasting cultural connections for both students and adults.
2. Language: Students learn new languages for school, work and personal growth, online and in EF classrooms around the world. Study abroad programs allow them to practice and improve where the language and culture come to life.
3. Academics: Fully accredited EF schools offer International Baccalaureate diplomas and university preparatory classes —all of which emphasize experiential learning. In addition, we are affiliated with Hult International Business School where students can earn both a bachelors degree and an MBA.
Currently scheduled 2017 EF Tours:

These lands were once home to ancient Celtic and Gaelic tribes; today their histories blend comfortably into the modern day.
Step into the Middle Ages on Edinburgh’s Royal Mile and under the towering spire of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Dublin. In Belfast, old conflicts have given way to an influx of restored 19th-century architecture and a thriving arts scene.
