Common Study Abroad Questions from API’s SOC Team

April 9, 2024

Planning your journey abroad is thrilling, but we understand the importance of clarity and support during this pivotal process. This is why our Student Outreach (SOC) Team is here to help guide you every step of the way, ensuring you have the resources and assistance you need to make informed decisions. Here are some of the most common study abroad questions our team has received in the past month: 

I just applied to a program, who do I ask questions?

First off, congratulations on applying, we are so excited you chose API! Shortly after you apply, you will receive an email from your Program Coordinator about your application submission. They will be your main point of contact until you attend your program! They are here to answer any questions that come up. If you are ever unsure who to contact, feel free to reach out to us via chat, and we can get you in touch with the correct person!

Where to find courses and course numbers?

Course syllabus can be found on our Program Finder on the “Course” page! You can filter by location, session, and area of interest. Once you click on a course it will take you to another page. There you will find a brief description, which programs are offered for this course, how many credits, and a downloadable syllabus. The syllabus itself will have the course title and number. If for some reason there is not a syllabus, feel free to reach out to us via chat or email at [email protected].

How does housing work?

API housing is included in the cost of the program. Each program has different types of housing options, including apartments, student dorms, and local hosts. All of the housing is visited and verified by API staff to make sure it’s safe and meets student needs. 

Do you know a place where I can find a breakdown of the cost of the whole program?

When you go to the program page, on the left side under “application requirements” you will see the total cost of the program. Underneath that, you can click the link to a cost breakdown.
