Sail Abroad With Semester at Sea in 2011July 8, 2010
Does travelling the globe for three months without falling a semester behind sound like a good deal to you? I thought so. Apply now for the Spring 2011 Semester at Sea voyage and you can get your travel kicks and your university credits too.
Why pick one destination for your semester abroad when you can pick a dozen? Let your friends do a few cold months in London while you hit Cape Town, Chennai, Ho Chi Minh City and Hilo.
The Semester at Sea program has been around for decades, and it’s a great way for a student to travel around the world while working toward a degree. There are programs for teachers and seniors as well, so even if you’re out of school you can still do a sail around the world without paying the outrageous price that most cruise lines would charge for the same itinerary.
The program is run by an American university, but it’s open to international students (see the admissions requirements). Talk to your academic adviser to find out more about how you can make a semester sailing the high seas work into your graduation plans, then get your passport and visas and your ISIC. (It’s good all over the place!)
Start preparing for the Semester at Sea application deadlines and say bon voyage to academic boredom!
