Run your encrypted tunnel on a port they don't block, say port 80.
If they block port 80 nobody will be able to browse the web.
But they could defeat that with a proxy server.  I'm sure there's
a port they don't block, with enough traffic to hide in.

How hard are you willing to work at it?

And how much heat are you willing to take if they discover
you've been sneaking past their firewall?

It's not easy.  You would learn a lot.  But it's probably far more
trouble and risk than it's worth.
