Choose your model

1) U.S. FACULTY-LED

A faculty member from your institution teaches the course(es), and API makes all logistical arrangements.

2) HOST COUNTRY FACULTY INSTRUCTION

API arranges for host country faculty to teach specific courses to your students and API takes care of all of the logistical arrangements.

3) COMBINATION

API arranges for a faculty member from your institution and host country faculty to teach the courses while taking care of all of the other logistical arrangements.

4) INCORPORATE INTO AN ALREADY EXISTING API PROGRAM

If an already existing API program meets your needs, your institution simply “adopts” the program and offers it to your students. This program model can often be run more affordably than creating your own and does not necessarily have to be led by a faculty member from your university.

5) TRAVELING PROGRAM

A U.S. faculty led, host country faculty taught, or combination, that takes place in more than one location.

6) CURRICULAR INTEGRATION

API can help you and your faculty implement a specific course curriculum at one of API’s partner institutions abroad. API will assist by identifying the appropriate term, location and host institution as well as providing course curriculum matching assistance and handling all on-site student services and logistical needs.
