Semester & Academic Year Abroad Program

Your study abroad experience is discovered best in a year or semester abroad program. These programs share some of the same features, it only depends on how long you want to study abroad for that determines your program choice. However in both options you attend your classes and live in your destination city for the entire semester.

In an academic year abroad program, students spend a full academic year (9 months) abroad. A semester abroad is when students study abroad for half that time, typically 4 months. While away you’ll be fully immersed in another culture while simultaneously studying a program of your choice. During this time you’ll live and study abroad as though you have lived there your whole life! It’s a one of a kind experience that many people which they could take part in, and with SC Study Centers you can.

Both of these programs are ideal for those who are able to easily adapt to a whole new environment while also being able to fully commit to a four to nine month program.
