Semester Ahoy! Spend Summer or Fall 2011 With Semester at Sea

February 16, 2011

Semester at SeaWhatcha doing for Summer or Fall 2011? Apply now for a 2011 Semester at Sea voyage and you can get your travel kicks and your university credits, too.

Because 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.

Travelling the globe for three months without falling a semester behind takes planning though… 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.

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.)

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.

Semester at Sea: Plan Ahead for 2009

Semester at Sea

Yes, I know you’ve just barely settled into your new semester and classes and teachers and friends and roommates, but it’s time to start looking ahead to next year.

If you’re thinking about doing a semester abroad, now is when you should be gathering information, requirements and applications for Summer and Fall 2009. Maybe you aren’t sure whether Semester at Sea is right for you. Maybe you’ve never even heard of it. Or maybe you’ve had your heart set on a semester in Paris or Tokyo or Sydney. That’s fine. But give yourself the chance to explore other options, if only because it will make you that much more confident that your final choice is the right one for you.

What is Semester at Sea? It’s a program that lets you visit a dozen countries during your semester instead of just one, and earn just as many units (although you should always consult with your academic counselor to make sure the units will be honored).
