ISA Academic Information
During the final eight weeks of the program, students will have the opportunity to spend 15-35 hours per week at an host organization, increasing their language proficiency and gaining valuable international experience. Language proficiency will be determined by a phone interview before acceptance to the program. Placements are arranged prior to arrival in the host country and language requirements vary.
Service-Learning placements are coordinated by ISA and have no affiliation with the university. Students will develop a Portfolio throughout the program, documenting their projects, hours and program activities. Students can earn 1-6 credits based on the number of contact hours accrued at the host organization and successful completion of the Portfolio. Visit the ISA Service-Learning website for more information.
Please note that the program price does not include airport pick-up, drop-off, or excursions.
Gap Year students are also eligible for this program.
