Imagine spending an academic term aboard a dedicated passenger ship, traversing the globe with 600 university students from around the world!
The Scholar Ship is a Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. initiative developed in collaboration with the following international universities:
Al Akhawayn University, Morocco
Cardiff University, United Kingdom
Fudan University, China
Macquarie University, Australia
Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico
University of California, Berkeley, USA
University of Ghana, Ghana
During a 16-week term, students will pursue numerous opportunities through academic field studies, shore excursions and independent travel. The port programme is highly integrated into the academic programme, creating a sophisticated learning experience.
On board, students will be completely immersed in a multicultural living environment. The international student body and staff form a learning community that integrates academic, cultural and social experiences in programmes that would be virtually impossible to duplicate elsewhere.
Students are being recruited worldwide to ensure a multicultural learning environment. Worldwide voyages aboard The Scholar Ship will be 16 weeks in duration, offering a compelling itinerary to eight ports spanning five continents including several days spent providing students with enriching experiences through participation in field programmes, excursions and independent travel.
