Geography: Some of the best trips that will help you learn some more Geography are found in Iceland, Italy, and Portugal. Whether you want a cheap and cheerful visit to the Gullfoss Golden Waterfall, take in the beauty of Furnas Valley or fancy exploring Mount Vesuvius, you’ll certainly be thanking yourself for choosing Geography when you see these beautiful sights.
History: If you’ve got the money to splash, then it is highly recommended to visit the Great Wall of China with history students. Here you will learn all about the largest manmade structure to ever be built! There are also many museums out there full of so much history and will take you through all the wonders of the world.
Science: We’re also talking museums when it comes to science trips. Explore the most popular museum in London – The Science Museum! It says it all in the name, really. You could also venture to Germany for the Deutsches Museum, or take the trip of a lifetime and be taken around the CERN Physics Laboratory in Switzerland.
Religious Studies: Travelling the world is one of the most effective ways of learning about religion. There are so many diverse cultures out there that we are so uneducated about! The best way to learn is by experiencing first hand! Visit the Taj Mahal in India, The Vatican Museums in Italy, and Santiago de Compostela Cathedral in Spain!
Art: There are some incredible pieces of art and architecture in the world which simply cannot be justified through a camera lens. Experience these phenomenon’s for yourself and visit places like Musée du Louvre for an inspiring environment!
Drama: The best way to learn about drama is to visit world-famous theatres and watch the exceptional shows right before your eyes. Your best bets would be Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre, Sydney Opera House, or Palais Garnier.
English: Delve in to the life of some of the most talented writers and visit the Dublin Writers Museum. If this doesn’t take your fancy, then the British Library or Royal Shakespeare Theatre should help you out. It only seems right to explore the United Kingdom for this subject!
