Immersion trips to Africa and Latin America
The University Foundation for Development Cooperation (USOS) organises immersion trips to partner institutions in Congo, Nicaragua, Tanzania and Morocco. Two of these "exposure experiences" are organised every year during the summer months.
What, where, when?
You spend about four weeks with host families in the city and the countryside and also visit local organisations. Since an immersion trip should also be a real learning experience, USOS organises weekends, country sessions, intercultural talks, lectures and visits to social projects from the beginning of the academic year onwards. The organisation also supports students on their return from immersion trips. In the summer of 2013, USOS is organising two immersion trips: one to Morocco (mid-August to mid-September) and one to Congo (August). Contact Janus Verrelst or visit the USOS website for more information about the immersion trips and the grants available.
