The Embassy Summer Tours, running in July and August, will be based around student requests and include meetings with registrar and admissions staff, class observations, city sightseeing, premium accommodation, 24-hour security and a full-time tour manager.

“Thousands of international students each year benefit from the relationships that Embassy and Study Group have built with higher education institutions,” said Stu Gold, Senior Vice President, Global Product Management and Marketing for Embassy English.

“Our new University Tours programme leverages these relationships to offer Embassy Summer students a unique experience – structured, facilitated visits to give them an insider’s perspective of life on a US college campus. These tours are organised and led by group leaders with years of experience,” Gold said.

Embassy has drawn up lists of institutions that students can use to create a tour schedule, including: Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Boston; Columbia University and Yale University in New York; and University of California, Los Angeles, and University of Southern California.

The University Tours are part of Embassy’s ‘Best Summer Ever’ marketing campaign for 2015, which has already seen the announcement of an enhanced portfolio and new location in the UK.   

Embassy Summer offers courses in the USA, Canada and the UK, and Study Group has partnerships with over 100 higher education institutions around the world, including in the UK, USA, the Netherlands, Ireland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
