Our Approach to Academics
The programming created and implemented by CIS Abroad reflects high quality academics and co-curricula, with a focus on innovation, distinction, and creativity.
At the core of our approach to program design is a distinct focus on academic relevance and career readiness. At CIS Abroad we strive to give students uncommon access to new ideas around the globe through quality coursework, internships, service learning, and research opportunities which align with their course of study, prepare them for their future careers, and challenge them in new and creative ways.
OUR WORK IS GUIDED BY FIVE PRINCIPLES
We partner with universities abroad who can offer a wide variety of classes, including for those hard-to-find majors. We also look for partners who provide robust student support services, flexible housing options, AND that will accept your U.S. financial aid!
What does this mean for you? Highly ranked and accredited universities abroad (more than 60% of our Business program options are AACSB-accredited!) and innovative courses taught by accomplished faculty.
HIGH IMPACT PRACTICES
We think your academic experiences should be challenging, even though you may be studying on a beach instead of your campus library. Before you explore abroad, check out undergraduate research opportunities, service learning, and for-credit internships.
THE LOCAL LIFE CO-CURRICULUM
You want to live like a local while abroad, not a tourist! With CIS Abroad, you’ll have just that – in-depth cultural experiences that help you reflect and achieve greater cultural understanding on a personal, local, and global level.
Looking for a cutting-edge academic experience? We can deliver. From the Bond Business Accelerator in Australia to the hands-on fashion design at RMIT Vietnam, we’re always creating exciting new options.
