The Okavango Delta, recently declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is home to some of the world’s most abundant and diverse wildlife populations. Our projects involve working closely with local people to implement a wildlife monitoring program in the Delta. Students conduct wildlife surveys, monitor rare and threatened bird species, and enjoy amazing wildlife viewing opportunities in one of Africa’s most vibrant wetland and savannah ecosystems. Our unique programs give students the opportunity to contribute to local conservation, while gaining valuable field skills and earning undergraduate course credits.

Cool Program of the Week in Oxford

UK-Oxford-Univ of Oxford

University of Oxford: Oxford – Visiting Student Programme

Tired of easy, boring classes?  Love to study and hang out with scholars?  Ready to up your academic game?  Try a year (no semesters or short terms) at the world’s best university, it may just be the hardest thing you ever do which is why the Visiting Students Programme is our cool program of the week.

If you are a student from overseas (in most cases countries outside the EU) and wish to spend up to one year in Oxford on a course related to a degree in your own country, you can apply to a college for a place as a Visiting Student. As a Visiting Student you become a member of an Oxford college, and it is the college that will arrange for your tuition. Oxford does not award a degree or any other qualification for one year of study as a Visiting Student, but colleges are willing to provide a record of achievement, for example for credit purposes.
