Study tours can help internationalize curricula and prepare students for global workplaces. We examine benefits of tours providing deep-level learning experiences rather than industrial tourism using five main theoretical frameworks to highlight the diverse learning benefits associated with intensive study tours in particular. Relevant theoretical models are Kolb’s Experiential Learning Model, Gregorc’s Style Delineator, Felder-Silverman Index of Learning Styles, VARK Questionnaire, and Dunn and Dunn’s Learning Style Model. Intensive study tours address nearly all the styles and techniques encompassed by these models.
