The Global Learning Institute

Our Global Learning curriculum appeals to both student & traveling business groups and is designed to relate directly to home country areas of academic and professional interests. Our goal is to expand program participant's knowledge of regional and national history, current events and global readiness with special attention to cultural awareness and social adaptation. This combination creates a customized learning opportunity across school and workplace specific interests within the Greater Austin area that is broad in scope, but targeted in delivery.

Austin is the State Capital and self-proclaimed Live Music Capital of the World. Being in the center of Texas, Austin is the best location for short day or overnight excursions within the State. Sporting events, live music, history, an abundance of natural features like Barton Springs, bat tours and green belt hiking trails, and of course mouth watering Texas barbecue, all make for a well-rounded Texas experience. For the adventurous at heart, a short drive gets you the River Walk and the Alamo, shopping at the various outlet malls, NASA, tours at a multitude of Texas wineries and olive oil estates or fishing in the Gulf of Mexico.

What Our Program Participants Are Saying

"It has helped me to improve my English skills, which is really important, when you study business, and it also helped me to see a different way of teaching and a different school system than we have in Denmark. This will help me in my job, because it is a kind of internship, which can be written in my CV."

Student, 2017 (Hernginsholm Erhvervsskole & Gymnasier)

"I know much more about the culture differences between Texas and Denmark. I've learned that I don't have to be shy when Iím meeting new people."

Student, 2017 (Hernginsholm Erhvervsskole & Gymnasier)

"I think the trip has been very nice. It is something that I can always remember about. All the experience has been great and I am glad that I could share it with classmates. The teachers have been very sweet and good. They are helpful and approachable. I felt comfortable and secured in the classrooms. Also I would have liked to been to San Antonio in a few more days. It has been very nice to know the teachers and hotel employers."

Maria (HHX 2014)

"Transportation has been great. The same with accommodations. I would maybe say to move the class one hour earlier so that we have the opportunity to go and explore Austin more after school. Overall the experience has been great and I have gained a lot both socially and knowledge wise."

Student, 2018 (Aarhus Business College)

"I absolutely loved the trip! It was my first time visiting the US (which has always been a dream for me) and it will definitely not be my last time visiting! I loved the overall culture and people of Texas! I loved the people that I spoke with daily, and I loved the fact that Brian Bilich did such an amazing job organizing everything. He found a gym that we could workout at, he found a bar/restaurant so we could watch the Super Bowl and he was always so nice and chatty. I can't describe my trip in words, but I loved every last minute of it! The only thing that needs to be changed: more business classes."

Daniel (HHX 2014)

"It has been a great experience for me. Before the trip, I have a different opinion about USA. I admit that I had a low opinion on the country all based on what I have heard. The trouble with poverty and gun laws. I wasn't really excited to go to a country with so many guns, particularly Texas. After traveling here and really getting to know the United States and Texas, I learned that despite the flaws and the problems there is a real genuine humanity among the American people. It is a bright light to witness and one that deeply marked itself on my heart. The people of the United States have a bright personality, they are friendly, funny and awesome. They have admirable traits and values that makes me understand why they are beloved and proud of their country. I am deeply honored that I got to witness the United States. I am deeply honored that I got to know some very good people."

David (HHX 2014)

"Brian did a great job planning everything, and when a problem occurred, he quickly found a solution. Therefore, I had a pretty smooth and great trip."

Student, 2019 (Hernginsholm Erhvervsskole & Gymnasier)

"Everything was perfect. I Hope this Tour can be given to all the students. Because it gives so much."

Student, 2019 (Aarhus Business College)

"It has been an amazing experience. The program coordination was near perfection. Every guest speaker was great and was really useful."

Student, 2016 (Aarhus Business College)

"It was a great way to experience the American culture, making me want even more to study a semester in America."

Student, 2019 (EUC Nordvest)

"I've learned a lot about other cultures, but also about how to present correctly. Personally, I've become more open."

Student, 2017 (Hernginsholm Erhvervsskole & Gymnasier)

"I feel that I now have a very good perspective of Texas, and got the best side of Texas from the 2 weeks, and Texas' core values."

Student, 2019 (Hernginsholm Erhvervsskole & Gymnasier)
