Group Flights: World Learning (the parent company of The Experiment) arranges supervised international group travel through designated airlines or travel agents and designates the times and ports of departure for all group transportation. Travel arrangements are billed separately from the program fee. All students are required to travel on the group flight arranged by The Experiment. Any request for an exception to this policy must be submitted in writing. There is a $250 inconvenience fee for students flying independently from the group.

World Learning, the agents selected by it, and the airlines reserve the right to cancel the air transportation arrangement or change dates, times, prices, and itinerary, and to make aircraft substitutions. In the event changes or substitutions are made by World Learning, its agents, or the airlines at any time prior to the program date, the parties agree that World Learning is not responsible for the cost of airline tickets or any associated fees, including change fees or cancellation fees.

There is no program fee for students accepted into The Experiment’s Leadership Institute programs, South Africa: Youth Leadership in Peace, Politics, and Human Rights or India: Public Health and Community Development.
