Education For Life: Connecting With The Global Community Through Study Abroad
Education should always be more than classrooms and textbooks. At Tiffin University, we believe in education for real life. We live in a global community, and there are few events that can influence a person more than the experience of studying and traveling abroad.
Studying abroad means becoming part of the community in which you are living. You will be more than simply a tourist. You will experience real engagement and make authentic connections. Part of developing your independence means learning to handle simple daily tasks that you take for granted at home: using a pay phone, negotiating the public transit system, posting a letter, shopping for groceries, and doing the laundry. All of these tasks and more must be re-learned when you enter a new culture.
Studying abroad takes your education one step farther. After all, education combines all of those experiences over a lifetime which – taken together – make us uniquely who we are.
Study Abroad Programs and Locations
AIFS provides study abroad programs in 18 countries: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, China, Costa Rica, Czech Republic, England, France, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, New Zealand, Peru, Russia, South Africa, Spain. AIFS also offers Multi-Country tours in the summer.
Programs are offered Fall, Spring and Summer. Not all programs are offered every semester. Some are only during the academic year and others are offered only in the summer. The majority of the courses are taught in English, but there is ample opportunity for language study. A few the programs require that students take language courses on site or that they be proficient in the language. Internships are available at several of the locations.
From studying Arabic in Jordan or Morocco to media, design, and social communications in Brazil, students pursue their passion and interests in a culture and landscape that capture the imagination and the true essence of the place. CIEE offers programs in over forty locations worldwide.
The Regent's College campus is located in the heart of London within the 487 acre Regent's Park, which includes the Queen's Rose Garden. While London is one of the largest cities in the world its extensive public transit system of double-decker buses and subways (the tube) provide an efficient way to take it all in. And yet, it is still incredibly safe. The Student Services Office at Regent's provides many of the same services students are used to receiving at Tiffin University, including on-campus room and board, counseling, and student activities. In addition, they handle health, safety and security issues for students.
Tiffin University’s program at Oxford is offered through an arrangement with the Oxford Study Abroad Programme. This program is offered both fall and spring semesters as well as summer. While fall and spring are for full-time attendance, the summer term is usually part-time. The term consists of 12-13 weeks in 14 tutorials (usually regarded as the equivalent of 14 US semester credits) taught by members of the faculty of Oxford University. Each tutorial has one tutor and one or two students.
Students live in double room housing with one or more British or other non-American student residents and may take most of their meals in their Oxford college dining hall at low cost.
Located near the banks of the Danube and just a few blocks from the United Nations, the University features an American education in an active central European environment. Generations of students, artists, and connoisseurs of living have sought out Vienna for its inspirational art, architecture, parks, palaces, music, opera and, of course, the wonderful coffee houses.
About 30 minutes from Amsterdam, Leiden is noted as the oldest and largest university town in The Netherlands. Leiden can be traversed on foot in an afternoon, but many students choose to rent or purchase a bicycle while living there. Next to walking, bicycles are the most popular form of transit. Located along one of Leiden's many canals, the campus houses classrooms, offices, a library, snack bar, and student lounge. The student population is quite international due to the proximity of Amsterdam with its multinational companies and The Hague, which is home to many international political organizations.
Study abroad students from the U.S. make up a small part of the overall enrollment here. The presence of the United Nations in Geneva, along with corporate representation from around the world, creates a multinational community that is reflected in the student and faculty population. The campus comprises approximately five acres, and its multiple buildings contain classrooms, the library, a computer lab, offices and a cafeteria. Outside the classroom, students may elect to become involved in a variety of activities, including participation in community soccer, volleyball, and basketball teams.
Webster University Thailand offers an exciting educational adventure. You will earn American accredited credits with courses taught in English. The university's international education is daily life.
