Study tours are compulsory and an integral part of academics. BMSSA annually organizes 10 day guided National and International tours and Mid semester weekend trips for the students according to their curricular requirements, which presents them with an opportunity to understand basic structural forms, architectural history and cultural significance of the built forms first hand.
The study tours are also pre-planned to cover certain aspects of the curriculum through a first hand experience of the region especially for Architectural Design, History or Contemporary Architecture and Vernacular or sustainability techniques.
A few documentation trips to nearby heritage sites are also organized to develop a deeper understanding about the history, structure, culture and planning principles of the structures.
