In addition to traditional study abroad and research programmes, more students and faculty are participating in experiential learning courses, volunteer service and mission trips. These opportunities immerse globally-minded students in different cultures and offer a hands-on educational experience.
Many programmes are unaffiliated with your school and are based in countries with emerging economies or in remote and difficult regions. In these areas, natural disasters, riots, crime, accidents and sickness can seriously endanger well-being, disrupt travel and undermine personal safety.
Before students go abroad, it is important to fully manage the travel, security and health risks that they may face. Providing information on personal security, cultural and travel tips, health issues, food and water safety as well as vaccinations, can help make your study abroad programme a better experience.
Our scholastic programmes are available to colleges and universities globally.
