How it Works
Our staff work closely with university faculty, study abroad offices, high school teachers and students to design bespoke, experiential learning programs that are meaningful, feasible and cost-friendly. We handle the on-ground logistics so you can focus on the learning and teaching aspects. Tailor an experience that includes everything you are looking for in a study abroad experience, whether virtual or in-person. If you and your students have a huge sense of adventure, want to combine travel with learning or do something off the beaten path, we'd like to talk to you!
We strongly believe that teachers and faculty members have the greatest voice in engaging students to intern or study abroad which is why our custom programs are designed in partnership with teaching staff and often bear academic credit upon the successful completion. Students have the option to sign up for structured and institutionally-managed programs powered by our team. Alternatively, students can enroll for independent study or a career-building internship experience as well. We offer virtual modes of learning alongside in-person immersive experiences.
Expand Your Global Footprint
We are passionate about partnering with new institutions in order to bring our mission to life. Our collaboration will make a significant contribution to your institutional internationalization strategy and international outlook. Ask about our discounted faculty seminars and familiarization tours which will give you an accurate feel and touch about the Ugandan on-ground experience, our team, and the academic and organizational partners that support what we do. We also cater to the needs of institutions interested in internationalization at home strategies or custom collaborative (virtual) learning options that complement classroom learning and espouse global awareness.
Featured Study Abroad Courses
We work with you to tailor virtual or in-person courses to meet your institutional and learning objectives. Our disciplines include the social sciences, humanities, health and medicine, natural sciences, law, engineering and architecture, agriculture, business and economics, among others.
Africana and Black Studies
Through this interdisciplinary course, students will acquire knowledge and develop skills that enable deeper understandings of Africa and the African diaspora and their relationship to world culture with their arts, labor, resources, and civil and human rights ideologies. Learning in Uganda will allow students a better framework with which to critique and contribute to academic topics of interest and also appreciate the cultural diversity and peoples.
Why Virtual Study Abroad
No ticket, No visa, No passport, No Problem!
Employability- Digital exchanges and virtual spaces are now popular as remote work becomes universally accepted. Virtual learning is an excellent way to experience intercultural communication and prepare for the future of work.
Diversity - We provide a non-traditional and unique global experience to meet the diverse interests and backgrounds of a growing body of students attracted to education abroad. Our institutional partners also have the opportunity to widen and diversify their global portfolio with us, easily.
Equity and Inclusion - Because our virtual courses are easily accessible and low-cost, we create a more equal playing field with reduced obstacles to studying abroad. Many more students who traditionally shy away from studying abroad have a more realistic chance to engage in a globally immersive experience. Also, our add-on courses can be coupled with existing curricula or class projects to provide an-inbuilt approach that encourages internationalization at home for all.
Why Short-Term, Instructor-Led Programs
Five reasons why we operate short-term, instructor-led, study abroad programs
Short-term study abroad is relatively cheaper than other alternatives and the prospect of travelling for a short duration is less daunting (less than 8 weeks)
Flexible and Customizable
Short term study abroad programs are easily customizable and managed giving faculty and teachers a larger degree of control over the program
Travel is with Classmates
Short term, instructor-led programs often include students that are familiar with each other which supports group dynamics during travel and learning
Reduced Risk, Less Hassle
Short term, instructor-led programs often carry less risk because overseas travel is for a shorter duration and students are easily monitored as a group
Short-term, instructor-led programs complement students’ on-campus coursework without semester disruption
We put special emphasis on the intentionality and feasibility of each program.
