One of the most exciting activities of the SES is the yearly Study Trip. In 2018 we visited Helsinki, St. Petersburg, Talinn and Riga and last year the Committee took us to Istanbul, Sofia, Prishtina and Tirana. The Travel Committee has the important task of organizing this yearly trip for a group of 45 students. They decide on a location, look for accommodation, organize transportation and make the day-to-day programme. This programme usually contains visits to universities, embassies, museums and famous historical sites. The aim of the Study Trip is to experience the culture of different European countries; the daily life, but also definitely the night life. The Travel Committee is usually the most sought after committee, so make sure you are well prepared for your interview. Furthermore, we strongly recommend to apply for a second committee as we would love to keep you as an active member in the unfortunate case that you won’t be selected.

Note: the work of the Travel Committee will be heavily influenced by the government regulations regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. The possibility of changing the travel plans into other activities that are safer can occur during the year. The Study Trip of 2021 is still a highly uncertain subject, but the Board believes that with a team of creative and flexible people, new ideas can be explored. However, it is important to note that there can always be a risk of alteration or cancelation for the trips organized by this committee, as it is very much dependent on the ongoing pandemic.

The Travel Committee consists of a Chair, a Secretary, a Treasurer, a Commissioner of Transport, a Commissioner of Activities, a Commissioner of Accommodation and a General Member.
