API has great reviews, accommodates to students' needs, and is affordable. Everyone that I have interacted with through API has been kind and very helpful. The program included trips throughout Spain, an international excursion, and other immersive activities such as a cooking class or language exchanges. API went above and beyond in ensuring that every student had an experience in Granada.

I felt that I had the support needed to leave my comfort zone. I would recommend my program since it provided me with the support/resources to thrive.

“My time at La Trobe University has been a very positive and rewarding experience. I love the atmosphere and the size of the campus. The decision to come to Melbourne was an easy one for me, and I have not regretted my choice once. I regard these times as some of the best moments in my life, and wish I could relive this experience., Although the coursework was a lot more independent than I was used to, it gave me a challenge and helped me grow as a student. Likewise, the city environment and frequent opportunities to travel in Victoria further helped me grow as an individual.."
