What’s the api study abroad program?

I’m gathering information about all of the study abroad programs that I can. This time I’d like to know about the api study abroad program. I thought about it and finally decided that I’ll study one year in a college abroad to live a totally different cultural experience from which I get valuable insight that will be useful for the rest of my life. Right now I think that I may study abroad in spain, but I still haven’t made my choice and maybe I could choose to go to one of the best universities in uk.

Let’s start by saying that API stands for Academic Programs International. It was founded in America in 1997 and sends currently more than 4,000 students abroad annually to more than 50 cities in 29 countries around the world. The API program to study abroad covers a large part of the world since they propose programs in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Oceania.

The API university programs are also open to non U.S. citizens, but there are special conditions to consider in that case. Non U.S. citizens are required to have advanced or native proficiency in English to be able to participate in one of the API programs. API can accept international applicants who seek a university degree in the United States or Canada. API also takes into consideration students from non-English speaking countries on a case-by-case basis.

The list of countries that API offers to people interested in studying abroad is the following: Asia and Middle East (Bhutan, China and United Arab Emirates), Europe (Croatia, England, France, Germany, Hungary, Poland, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Scotland and Spain), Latin America (Argentina, Chile, Costa Rica, Cuba and Ecuador), South Pacific (Australia and New Zealand) ( ). You can certainly continue your studies abroad in Spain if you choose one of the programs that API offers in that country.

API presents a variety of study abroad opportunities that range from programs to study in college or university that you choose in almost any country around the world to internships in companies abroad. Each program has its own conditions, but generally in order to participate you must be 18 years old and be in good academic standing at your U.S. university. You also need to have a minimum Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.5. If your GPA is lower you can still apply, but you must submit 2 letters of recommendation and a statement of explanation for your case to be considered.

API can take you to the best universities in the United Kingdom, such as the University College London which is one of the top 25 universities in the world. API has partner universities in London and Leeds. At the University of Westminster, you can take international relations courses. You can also choose the London School of Economics or the Florida State University London Study Center. At the University of Leeds, you can take science, literature or business.

I haven’t finished my high school studies yet but I can’t wait to take one of those study abroad programs. I’d like to take an api program because api works with so many universities in so many countries around the globe that I’m sure they know how to organize international study trips. I love spain and the spanish culture and after I finish high school I want to go and study in a spanish university. I can’t imagine something better than going to have a true paella after class or learning how to dance flamenco in a real spanish flamenco school. What I can’t decide yet is the city. Madrid looks cool and I’m sure it’d be great to study there but barcelona has a lot of history too and I’ve heard that it has a never ending night life! which can be a lot of fun after studying hard.
