There’s no better way for students to immerse themselves in a country’s language, lifestyle and culture than to study abroad. API’s programs place students in prestigious universities across four continents, where they complete courses in language, humanities, STEM and more. By studying alongside local and international classmates, API students receive an education that is as much cultural as it is academic, offering them the chance to sharpen their social skills, build confidence, and engender a global literacy and curiosity that will serve them well beyond program’s end.
