My professors are amazing. They are so well rounded and they really encourage that we participate in community events and do as much as possible. The classes were very personal and not just monotone lectures where you sit for an hour and listen. We would talk about a lot of current events and always related everything to back home.

Money Matters

By planning ahead, almost anyone can afford to study abroad, so start thinking about your finances as early as possible! That way, you can be sure to have enough resources to take full advantage of studying and living in a foreign country and the numerous opportunities it presents. Your travel plans and lifestyle will largely determine the amount of money you will want to have accessible, and it’s also a good idea to have extra funds available to use in the case of an emergency.

As a non-profit, university-based organization, USAC understands the financial pressures students (and parents) face to finance their educations and we are committed to maintaining modest fees for our programs. Additionally, we work to provide scholarships and access to other means of financing in order to provide an affordable study abroad opportunity with USAC.
