Learning is fun

Going Places


FarheenThis method of learning is fast catching up in colleges across the City. More popular with the arts and science streams, study tours have seeped down to commerce and hospitality students as well. Study tours enhance the learning and grasping capacity of students. Students tend to mingle well with their fellow students and teachers. 

Yogaraj Mudalgi, a final year BA student from Surana College feels, “Study tours are essential and must be incorporated in every college. It provides the students a practical knowledge about their course rather than being fed with text book knowledge. Study tours also help students relate with the concept they are taught in the classroom.”  

Farheen, a final year BCom student from Christ University says: “Study tours lead to a better understanding of the concepts. Until one sees something which one has studied, one will not get a feel of it. We also get to share the same room with friends and that adds to the fun.”

Study tours enrich student’s experience and they get to see places that they’ve never seen before. Commerce students visit industries, corporate offices and learn the intricacies of their work and the method of function. They go to different places across the state and country also to visit the industries there.

For instance, students of history visit palaces and cities which they’ve studied about. Science students will go to the areas of their field of study. Students take off on their sightseeing jaunts after the tour is over, mostly in and around the same place of visit. Shafeen, a first semester engineering student, BNMIT College says, “The thought of a study trip interests me because I not only get an opportunity to learn something but get a break from the monotonous classroom teaching. We gel more with all our classmates and enjoy the trip.”
