This innovative product is the latest addition to Thomas Cook India’s ‘Travel & Learn’ portfolio and is in association with The Red Pen College Tours, USA.
Studying in the US is indeed complex; the traditional route of online research or word-of-mouth falling short of providing Indian students and their parents with either a realistic or hands-on perspective. To bridge this gap, Thomas Cook India’s ‘Travel & Learn’ product team had hence created specialized University Tours- aimed at providing a glimpse into university life experiences with visits to US colleges, insightful interactions with both counselors and students and in-depth meetings with university admission advisors. Personalised care and attention is ensured via the expertise of an experienced Thomas Cook Tour Manager who accompanies the University Tour group of students and parents/ family members.
The specially designed itineraries of Thomas Cook India’s University Tours cover a diversity of premium educational institutions including, Stanford University, University of California – Los Angeles (UCLA), Harvard University, New York University (NYU) and Princeton University.
Ms. Shibani Phadkar, Senior Vice President & Head - Leisure Travel (Outbound) Products, Thomas Cook (India) Ltd. said: “Education has always been a strong and strategic focus area at Thomas Cook India and I am delighted to launch our unique “University Tours” as part of the “Travel & Learn” product portfolio. This pioneering initiative in association with The Red Pen is aimed at giving students a vibrant firsthand perspective of what to expect when pursuing their undergraduate studies in America. On-ground counseling and interactions with local students and counselors make for engaging sessions while ensuring selection of an apt university.”
