As our country and our world become more global, study abroad brings a wide range of personal and academic benefits for your student. It can enhance interest in academic study and other education experiences that support fascinating career choices. What’s more, study abroad develops awareness of and comfort with other cultures, leads to more diverse friendships, and builds a sense of resilience and independence. Participants often say they better understand their own cultural values as a result of their experiences abroad.
SIT Study Abroad has a rich history of providing experiential education to undergraduate students for more than 50 years. We offer programs in more than 30 countries in Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and the Middle East, covering critical global issues such as sustainable development, biodiversity, and migration.
We help your student make the most of this extraordinary opportunity with:
- carefully selected homestays that enhance your student’s sense of inclusion and build language skills more quickly;
- excursions led by world-class professors and other experts to places and people far off the beaten path; and
- internships and independent study projects that expand on these life-changing experiences.
Through SIT Study Abroad, your student becomes part of SIT’s worldwide network of individuals and organizations committed to responsible global citizenship.
