Educational tourism also called as edu-tourism is a sub type of the travel and tourism sector.
Educational tourism could be referred to as an approach for pursuing education, carrying out research activities
and knowledge acquisition. This sector is acquiring popularity these days and is a fast growing sub-sector in the
travel and tourism industry. As far as academics are concerned, this sector has vast scope and is changing the
dynamics of the sector constantly; it is more of a perspective type of tourism. Educational tourism is also called
by other names such as job development, career enhancement or self-actualisation experience. The idea is that apart
from self-improvement, travel can be relaxation, learning can be more fun than ever and there is no age bar restricting
people from learning
by travelling (this does not include people who wish to travel for educational purposes but are unable to travel due to
Educational cruises, school trips, seminar vacations, study abroad experiences
and self enhancement vacations are few examples of educational tourism. Knowledge can be
imparted in a much better manner apart from sitting in one corner and reading books. Practicality is far better than theory.
