Study on the High Seas: Semester at Sea 2011

August 26, 2010

Semester at SeaYou may have just gotten back to campus, but I think you should start thinking about leaving again.

Why now? Because travelling the globe for three months on an awesome ship and visiting a bunch of countries and meeting people from all over the world without falling a semester behind takes planning… and paperwork. If there’s one thing universities are really good at, it’s coming up with new and completely un-exciting forms for you to fill out, so best to start now.

Apply now for the Spring 2011 Semester at Sea voyage and make sure 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.

This is your classroom.

The Semester at Sea program has been around for decades, and it’s a great way for you to travel around the world while working toward a degree (and get your parents and scholarships to pay for it).

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! (Questions? Talk to Semester at Sea on Twitter: @SAS_Dave.)
