More details on all Study Tours

BKA Study Tours are organised in partnership with The Kodály Institute, Kecskemét.

The study tours are Monday to Friday so arrival in Hungary should therefore be Sunday and departure Saturday. Of course you may want to stay on and do some sightseeing. This is entirely up to you!

How do we get there?
It is easier for you to arrange your own travel given that people will be coming from all over. The sooner you book your flights the cheaper it is.

Where will we stay?
Hotels will be booked for the whole group and will be somewhere in the region of £45 per night. Obviously if people wish to share a room, the cost would be reduced. If people want to make other arrangements for accommodation that is also fine however please note that we leave together as a group from the Hotel each morning.
