What does it mean to study abroad, intern or take a gap program virtually with API?
COVID has made us all pretty comfortable with zoom-style meetings, classes, and even socializing. But it’s one thing to take 2-dimensional virtual class, and another to have a full, culturally relevant experience online like what you’ll get with API.
Through our experiential learning platform, APIConnect, you’ll not only get the information you need, you’ll get to explore new worlds, interact with international students, enjoy culturally unique online excursions, all while gaining the skills you need to accelerate your career.
Combine Virtual and On-site Experiences to Get the Most Out of Your Program
Need a specific set of classes you can only get at certain universities? Want to combine an on-site internship with some accredited coursework? Want to take a gap year, but also knock out some required classes? No problem! You can do all that and more by combining your on-site programs with virtual classes. Take an online class by morning and be on an excursion through the countryside or city streets later that same day.
Where will you go?
“The API Lab offered a wonderful chance to connect with students from all around the world and learn about business practices in an engaging and valuable way. Guest speakers provided incredible industry and experience insights and mentors were supportive and offered fantastic guidance. The content in the modules exceeded my expectations, especially in combination with the keynote speakers.”
