Many of our Clubs, Societies and Projects visit new and different locations to represent Imperial College London and carry out their activity throughout the year. Tours over the last few years have ranged from discovering new caves in Slovenia to singing A Cappella in America and playing rugby in Argentina.
The difference between a trip and tour is defined in the Tours policy and is important if you wish to apply for funding from the IC Trust Tours pot. As a basic explanation, a trip is an activity that would be considered normal for your group for example visiting a regular location, and a tour would be visiting somewhere completely new.
Each year, Imperial College Union applies to the IC Trust for funding and uses this money to financially support groups with their travel costs. If your Club, Society or Project would like to apply for tours funding, you can apply on eActivities and find more information in the Tours training manual and Tours policy.
