Bienvenue, welcome! We are so thrilled your child is attending an APA study abroad program. An opportunity for global learning, reflection, and exploration, a study abroad will challenge each individual and refine their skills in ways that a regular university setting cannot provide. On a daily basis, students are navigating new scenarios and communicating with others in a new, common language: critical thinking, problem solving, and communication skills all in a multi-cultural context. These career competencies are some of the most valued by employers today. Your child is about to embark on a journey that will aid in their future career and hold some of their most important memories from their time in college. On y va, let’s go!
