Academic Programs International

Academic Programs International (API) was founded in 1997 with the aim of providing affordable, high-quality study abroad programs for U.S. university students. Our international program portfolio has since expanded to include intern, teach, work, high school, and gap year programs in 29 countries around the world. Our study abroad programs offer students the opportunity to earn academic credit toward their degree programs in the United States by completing coursework in a wide range of disciplines, including Business, Medical Studies, Social Sciences, and the Arts. Apart from academic offerings, our programs include orientations programs, cultural and social activities, housing options, and an array of excursions. Our experiential programs – intern, teach, work, and volunteer – are designed to offer participants meaningful travel opportunities that allow them to transform their lives while transforming the lives of others.
