Summer Programs give students the opportunity to study in a foreign country for a short period, often focusing on intensive language study or one aspect of a country or culture. For example, students can experience the Korean language and culture, work with and study the Australian Indigenous population, or travel to Russia to learn about the history of Communism. Students who wish to improve their language skills or learn about a special academic subject in another country will benefit from Summer Programs. This is also a good option for students with a very rigid major or paradigm.
START PLANNING FOR SUMMER 2019! We recommend you apply between November - January 5, 2019
