Conversations with survivors of the Bosnian War, snorkeling sessions at the Great Barrier Reef, and genome lessons in the Galápagos Islands are activities students might experience during the 2026-27 school year.


Summer Term

A nation redefining itself

As travelers, we all form preconceived notions about the places we visit. Sometimes these notions are precise, sometimes they stray from reality. When THINK Global School arrived in Bosnia & Herzegovina in 2016, our accompanying students and staff weren’t entirely sure what they were about to experience. To their surprise, they left profoundly changed by the people they met, the landscapes they explored, and the ideas they discussed.

Bosnia is a country reimagining itself, a country distancing itself from the civil unrest that tore it apart in the early nineties. During their time here, student projects examine the past, present, and future of this heart-shaped land by focusing on the reconcilation process. The term includes visits to Srebrenica, the site of the conflict’s worst massacre, and Mostar, a beautiful city that is still largely divided.

“I was really affected by what happened in Srebrenica. After that weekend trip, I realized how one-sided that war was. Now I’ve looked into attaining an international law degree. I want to be able to change injustices like that. It’s a driving force now. It’s not just standing behind something and saying I support it. It’s going further, and I really want to do something and help the people in Bosnia. Not to just have justice, but to work together in moving forward.”

Fall Term

Coastal cities, breathtaking beaches, and wide-open wilderness

From the world’s oldest continuous culture to Mother Nature’s largest coral reef, Australia is as unique as the oddball animals who call it home.

Melbourne, with its iconic cityscapes and temperate year-round climate, serves as our host city and center of learning, but a number of planned excursions will give us a feel for Australia’s depth and development as a whole.

In previous terms, students have practiced Aboriginal customs during a visit to the Blue Mountains, studied native wildlife on Kangaroo Island, SCUBA dived the Great Barrier Reef, and met with representatives from Amnesty International and the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre for advice on effectively crafting an activism campaign.

Planned Projects

  • Designing a culturally appropriate activist strategy for students’ home countries based on their experiences with Australia’s social justice system

  • Planning and creating a mixed reality experience that meets the needs of a small business and their target audience

  • Using the expertise of Australia’s huge sporting industries to build a health initiative for a target group in need

Winter Term

Tradition and modernity combine for a timeless experience

Whereas India is a country undergoing significant change, Japan can always be counted on to stay much the same. One thing is for sure, however: almost every THINK Global School student who visits Japan lists the term among their favorite.

Our time in Japan is centered around the bustling host city of Hiroshima. And while its name evokes images of tragedy and loss for most, visitors are quickly won over by the city’s resilience and commitment to peace. Beautiful gardens, pristine temples, and a top-notch shopping center are all easily accessed by foot, bike, or tram, and the incredible Miyajima Island is just a short boat ride away.

Alongside hearing from survivors of the atom bomb, practicing kendo, learning to kodō drum, and consuming absurd amounts of sushi, students have the opportunity to participate in some truly fascinating projects during their time in Japan. These projects include a deep dive into how the Japanese approach marketing, using augmented and virtual reality to create a lesson for students worldwide, and examining the issue of nuclear energy usage in Japan by meeting with a variety of stakeholders.

Japan’s rail system also makes traveling the country a breeze. In the past, our staff and students have taken advantage of this by embarking on week-long learning excursions to Kyoto, Tokyo, and Osaka. You can expect a similar outing to one of these cultural treasure troves to be planned this year as well.

“The Conscious Consumerism module was wild. It was a chance to embark on some very non-vegetarian tours in Tokyo’s Tsukiji fish market, run errands for locally produced products, and cook with traditional sushi chefs. We learned a lot about the battle between an economy dependent on fish consumption and the growing environmental risk, all while eating delicious egg rolls.”

A Hiroshima Story for the World

On the 6th of August 1945, a bomb was dropped on Hiroshima, Japan, killing hundreds of thousands of people. During their 2019 term, CM2 students Levith A. and Julie G. filmed the short film A Hiroshima Story for the World, which shares the story of Soh Horie, a hibakusha (atomic bomb survivor). Mr. Horie has fought throughout his entire life to promote his message of world peace, and its importance.

Spring Term

Sweden’s innovative spirit points to a future as bright as the Northern Lights

Sweden’s captivating blend of natural beauty and innovative urban design, from the cosmopolitan streets of Stockholm and Gothenburg to the serene landscapes of the Artic Lappland, offers the perfect setting for our spring term and graduation.

A multicultural mosaic in many ways, Stockholm will provide the perfect home base to explore Sweden’s progressive society, culture, and diversity, all of which are reflected in the country’s modern architecture, enduring traditions, and pioneering approach to sustainability and cuisine.

Furthermore, Sweden’s role in international peace efforts and its innovative economy, home to globally recognized brands and startups, will offer unique insights into its position in global politics and economics.

Educational excursions this term might include wandering through the historic Gamla Stan in Stockholm, marveling at the Northern Lights in Abisko, or experiencing the Midsummer festival in the countryside. Wherever we find ourselves, every minute in this forward-thinking nation will be one to remember.

Potential Projects

  • Exploring the geometric principles, symmetry, and structural engineering concepts involved in Stockholm’s iconic architecture.

  • Exploring Stockholm’s sustainable urban development to see how future cities can be inspired by Swedish practices.

  • Designing a conservation initiative that addresses challenges faced by Sweden’s wildlife and natural habitats.

  • Applying principles of Swedish design to create innovative yet functional products that meet today’s needs.
