COURSE INFORMATION

Not all courses are offered every semester or every year. The course selection may vary, and no course is guaranteed. Some courses may have prerequisites, and some courses may require additional fees for labs, equipment, etc. Registration takes place upon arrival; however, we recommend that students have 6-8 courses approved by their home university prior to departure, in order to allow for scheduling conflicts. Course times, course descriptions and the semester in which a course is offered are subject to change and no course is guaranteed.
