College Study Abroad Programs

college study abroad programs

Studying abroad is one of the most enriching experiences a college student can have, offering unparalleled growth. Studying abroad broadens students’ horizons while making them more marketable to grad schools and employers by showing they understand other cultures and perspectives. There are various study abroad programs tailored specifically for learners of different types.

Most programs organized through your school are usually managed in partnership with third-party providers or foreign universities, eliminating middlemen and often leading to lower tuition fees. Faculty-led and academically focused options exist such as language or culture immersion programs; other experiential options, like Goshen’s Study Service Team (SST) program where students spend most of their time living with local families while participating in community service projects are more extensive in nature.

Short-term study abroad trips can easily fit into your regular course of study. They could take place during January intersession or spring break, summer intensive sessions or full academic semester abroad and typically include cultural and educational activities along with group travel to multiple destinations.

Some colleges also provide their own study abroad programs in specific locations or on certain subjects. For instance, Bard students can earn credits while taking part in London spring or summer term via Global Launch program.
