Overseas Short-Term Summer & Winter Programs

Program Overview

APU students can participate in curricular, summer and winter programs offered at APU’s partner universities. Because many summer and winter programs center on intensive courses in English, students must possess a high level of English proficiency prior to participation. In addition to attending all classes, students must actively participate in class activities. Studying and living abroad is an invaluable experience. However, it can also be difficult and stressful. In principle, you are responsible for dealing on your own with any problems you might experience abroad. We expect that you have a keen awareness of your surroundings and have the ability to act responsibly to avoid any dangerous situations. If approved by Academic Affairs, credits obtained during short-term programs will be transferred back to APU and counted toward the credit requirements for graduation.
