Orientation Tours

The GGT UDRH offers students the opportunity to participate in orientation tours of their host towns through local organisations. Orientation tours help students familiarise themselves with a town's layout and the availability and location of supermarkets, ATM's and banks, post offices, sporting and recreational facilities, cinemas and the like. They also give students some insight into the local community and a chance to ask any questions they might have about the region or their town of placement.
