Site Visits

API conducts 1-2 familiarization site visits each year. Participation allows our institutional partners to personally experience API and the way we administer our programs abroad. Participants will visit the program sites and tour the host institutions and on-site facilities, and will also meet API on-site directors, domestic staff and current API students, and will visit API housing options and observe classes at the host institutions. These opportunities equip participants with first-hand knowledge of API and the kind of programs we offer. This is beneficial to advisors and faculty as they advise students of high quality study abroad opportunities. Site visits also include opportunities to see some of the very places that API students will visit on excursions included in API programs. API has never required a minimum level of student enrollments in order to qualify to participate in an API site visit. We truly believe that in order to have full confidence in a program, it must be evaluated, and we welcome input regarding our programs.
