One such tour that AES can offer is for sports management students, providing them with an action packed and exciting weeklong tour around some of the most prestigious sporting sites in and around London, England. AES have had a lot of experience in providing tours for groups with an interest in sport, and our London sports management tours have been designed to provide students with a broad overview of sport in the UK. The tour can be tailored to your own requirements, but a sample itinerary would include a focus on many different sports, meaning there is something for everyone. Over the space of just a few days, students can receive guided tours of Wimbledon, Wembley Stadium, Twickenham, Lord’s and the London 2012 Olympics site. It is also possible to take students to historic Oxford in order to meet with members of the Oxford rowing team to learn about their gruelling training regime. Furthermore, they can visit an Olympic training facility, as well as visiting a football ground to meet with the marketing and events team and take in a football match. Students will have the opportunity to visit Stoke Mandeville Stadium, the site where the Paralympics was born, as well as the chance to meet with a representative from a charity focusing on enabling young people with disabilities to enhance their sporting skills.However, AES knows that without a few breaks this would be information overload for most students, so our tours are tailored to allow free time in order for students to get to grips with everything else that London has to offer, meaning that there will be the right balance between education and fun. On the day that they arrive, they will be given a guided coach tour through the city (with plenty of photo ops) and they will also be able to visit Westfield Stratford City (the biggest shopping centre in Europe). Furthermore, students will have the great opportunity to take in a West End show- an absolute must do when visiting London.
A tour like this is a really fantastic opportunity for sports management students to get excited and enthused about their course, by seeing places where sport has made (and continues to make) history. After five full days (and two half days) of tours, meetings, and absorbing the culture of London, students will head home tired, but inspired, and with great memories and practical examples to apply to their studies the following year. All tours are fully customised and can take place numerous locations including Ireland, Scotland, Italy, The Netherlands and more. Contact us to schedule your customised educational tour today!
