“I am completely satisfied, and very impressed. Your resident directors are marvelous, and the support I got from API both in Texas and Budapest was excellent, and given the medical emergency we had, very effective. I am particularly grateful for how that situation was handled.” – S. Jobbitt, Cal State Fullerton

The following are specific examples of academic visits that have been arranged to complement academic programming:

  • In Italy, students in an art and design program observed jewelry making and leatherworking at local studios, visited a marble cave and sculpture studio in Carrara, and were taken on guided tours of museums and sites.
  • As part of a biology program, guided visits to the rainforests and remote beaches of Costa Rica gave students an up-close look at diverse flora and fauna. The country’s many national parks and volcanic sites also provided excellent opportunities for instruction and research.
  • An engineering program in Grenoble included visits to a local engineering school, a visit to Schneider Electric, the world leader in Electricity and Automation Management, and the Bugey nuclear reactor site.
  • A business program in Madrid included visits to Tetra Pak, one of the world’s leading food and beverage processing and packaging companies, the Madrid Stock Exchange, and Banco Santander.
  • Students participating in a biology and environmental science program visited natural parks, botanical gardens, and a farming school in Seville.
  • A Spain Field Experience In Nutrition program provided students with the opportunity to visit a public health clinic, participate in a community feeding program, tour hospital wards to see the preparation of meals and interact with patients, and visit local schools’ cafeterias and kitchens.

“I felt like the API staff, both in Texas and in Paris did a very good job of helping develop and coordinate a set of activities that were well-suited for the program, and for the personal/individual needs of the students in the program.” – J. Sterns, University of Florida
