Students can also attend the Study Abroad Fair at the beginning of each semester to meet program representatives and learn more about program options.
Program Providers: The program is hosted at a study abroad center with a combination of center classes and university classes. Program providers are third party organizations (typically U.S. based) that arrange the logistics such as housing, activities, excursions, and may hold some of the classes at their center and at the host institution. Other students on the program are North American study abroad students.
Direct Enroll: Students enroll directly at the host institution with U.S. and international study abroad students as well as local students. Many students can live on campus and experience full campus life.
Exchanges: A Chapman student will take the place of a local student and may take courses in English or the host language as a student of the host university. Students take classes alongside of local students and typically live with other international students. These programs require a student to be more independent, mature, and academically minded. These experiences are very rewarding, as they are typically the most immersive types of programs.
