Short-term International Programs offer students a multitude of opportunities for personal and intellectual growth. It has been observed that students who have spent between two weeks to a full semester studying in another country report a greater understanding and appreciation of other cultures and customs, a heightened awareness of their country's identity and place on the world stage and a better idea of what is required to be a "global citizen."
Semester Exchange Program
Alliance University’s Semester Exchange Programs enables students to study abroad for a semester while simultaneously hosting a student from a partner university. These programs provide students with the opportunity to complete a semester or a term of their academic programs in an international partner university. As a result of immersion in a foreign academic, cultural and business environment, students maximize learning to operate effectively in a global setting.
Under the Semester Exchange Program, students attend one of the partner institutions of Alliance University for an academic semester. Through the exchange program, students experience a global environment, a different culture and a diverse learning approach. The Semester Exchange Program is demanding as well as rewarding. While many of the exchanges focus on particular academic areas, others also offer a broader curriculum that allows a student to complete coursework that is not available through other avenues. These options present an exciting opportunity for students to pursue a more independent style of learning and cultural engagement. English is the language of instruction for all exchange programs.
International Summer School
Summer programs are a popular study abroad option among student groups who seek an intensive learning experience in an international setting. In the three to four weeks that these students spend in a foreign country, they go on to make a new set of friends, see new places, visit business organizations, learn a few phrases in a foreign language while at the same time acquire knowledge that is specific to their domains. The curriculum is designed to allow students to learn, experience and explore foreign cultures, thereby making their visits truly enriching.
