Q?

When should I start program promotion?

A.

It is always best to start promotion early so students have plenty of time to plan and save for the program. Typically professors will begin promoting programs twelve to nine months prior to departure.

Q?

Are educational contact hours satisfied?

A.

Ensuring the course meets your objectives and necessary contact hours is our priority. Each program will be customized to satisfy these requirements. Typically, professors will divide contact hours by offering pre-trip lessons, lessons while abroad, and post-trip lessons. Every program allows adequate time & locations for lessons to be held and include many hours of field study.

Q?

Do you have sample syllabi for short-term study abroad programs?

A.

Yes, please contact us requesting a sample syllabus and we will provide you a few samples for guidance to create your own syllabus.

Q?

How many students or participants are needed?

A.

For a complimentary program to be provided a group of at least 10 must be established.

Q?

Are my travel expenses covered?

A.

Yes, study abroad is not possible without professors to lead these enriching programs. We feel that providing this experience to students should earn every professor a complimentary trip.
