It was truly one of the best experiences of my life. I’m positive the Sepela field courses will go above and beyond anyone’s expectations.” – Elizabeth H., 2011
“Best experience of my life. Not only did I learn a lot but I had the privilege of witnessing some of Africa’s wildlife. It was truly amazing and I hope one day I will have the chance to go back.” – Melissa B., 2011
“The primatology field course taught me a multitude of scientific research methods, many of which I still use today. Some research methods can only truly be learned in the field, and the instructors provide hands on experience with widely used research tools and techniques.” – Claire D., 2009
“Attending the Primates of South Africa Field Course in the summer of 2011 was the highlight of my undergraduate career. The field technique training I received has carried me through to my graduate career and has become an impressive standout on my curriculum vitae – making it the most valuable learning experience of my educational career so far.” – Elizabeth H., 2011
