API offers study abroad programs year-round in 18 countries, in 40 cities. Programs can be as long as a full academic year or as short as two weeks. With a wide variety of courses offered in almost every major discipline and in various languages of instruction, it is easy for students to find a program that suits their academic interests. While courses are available in English in many locations, if foreign language acquisition is the primary goal, API offers high-quality language and culture programs for all levels of language learners.

Focus

on

ac a demic

e x c e l l en c e

All API students take courses at a partner institution or university based in their host country, rather than at a center just for API students. API university and institutional partners are either fully accredited foreign universities or institutes with U.S. schools of record.

value

API prides itself on the services and features it includes in its program costs so as to minimize out-of-pocket expenses for students on-site. API programs are designed to offer students a complete study abroad experience. The cost of an API program includes more than just tuition and housing. Exciting overnight and day excursions, academic and cultural support and resources, mobile phones, medical and life insurance, as well as social and cultural events are included in the cost of the program. For most programs, the main out-of-pocket expenses are the cost of the international flight and daily spending money for travel and meals. Additionally, once a student is accepted into an API program and quoted a program price, it will not change. With API, a student can accomplish more for less money!

S u per i or

st u d ent

ser v i c es

Studying abroad is a very exciting process, but also one that leads to many questions. API Program Managers and other U.S.-based staff are knowledgeable and readily available to assist students throughout the pre-departure process and into their session abroad. Once abroad, on-site API directors support students through the cultural transition process, provide academic support and guidance and serve as a source of reference both for everyday questions and emergencies. Whether the concern relates to academics, housing or daily life abroad, API strives to provide students with as much practical advice and guidance as possible. 7

A dvising API staff members guide students through the administrative processes of the pre-departure phase of study abroad. Students and parents may contact API staff as often as they desire with questions about academics, on-site logistics, special needs, visa procedures, etc. API staff members, in turn, are frequently in touch with students regarding program updates, essential travel tips and recommendations for having a successful experience abroad.

@ ap i

All applicants have access to the @api online student account. This online system allows students to complete and check the status of their application, download and complete application and post-acceptance forms, and verify that payments have been credited to their account.

O r i entat i on Mater i a l s an d R eso u r c es All API students receive orientation materials to help them prepare for their study abroad session. API students have access to a unique online service, the API Toolbox, which includes orientation materials, diagnostic exams, and language reviews. The Toolbox includes information on logistical details, cultural differences, what students can expect at their host university, health and safety concerns, travel tips and more. Additionally, in certain locations, API offers pre-departure orientation sessions for students and parents on the home campus.

Mob i l e

P hone

All API students receive a free phone (only the SIM card has to be returned upon completion of the session abroad) with discounted calling packages. With these cell phones, parents, API Resident Directors, family and friends at home and abroad can communicate with students and more easily contact them in the event of an emergency. When in the host country, incoming calls are free for students. Outgoing calls incur a per minute charge, and text messages also carry a fee per text.

P eer

Mentors

The API Peer Mentors are former API students who are available to speak to future API students about their program of interest. Peer Mentors have completed extensive training sessions with API and can answer questions students may have about the student experience.

S c ho l arsh i ps API awards over $400,000 in scholarships annually, in amounts ranging from $250-$1,000 per student. For more information on scholarship opportunities or to print an API scholarship application form, visit the API website. 8

API students are met at the airport by API staff on the program start date. Students receive detailed flight instructions upon their acceptance into the API program and should wait to purchase a flight until receiving more information post-acceptance.

R es i d ent D i re c tors API has highly qualified, trained and experienced English-speaking Resident Directors available to students throughout their session abroad. Most Resident Directors are locals from the host country in which students will be studying and all are ready to provide practical information and insight into the host culture. Our Resident Directors greet students at the airport, introduce students to the ways of life in their host country, help students to register at the host university and support students throughout their stay. They are available in case of any personal emergency and are ready to implement the API emergency response plans if needed. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––---––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

“This experience was challenging and yet unbelievably rewarding all at the same time. I will leave Spain a more well-rounded individual because of the people I have met, the places I have seen, and the knowledge I have gained about myself.”

On -SitE

O r i entat i on

The on-site orientation takes place during the first week of a student’s stay. API orientations include tours of the city as well as practical information about life in the host city, including transportation, safety and local culture. The orientation is designed to minimize adjustment difficulties upon arrival and gives students a chance to get to know other participants in the program.

Housing Housing is included in the API program fee. Depending on the host city, students may choose from various housing options, including apartments, homestays, or student dormitories. Students can usually request single rooms on their housing form for an additional cost, although some sites may have guaranteed single rooms as part of the program fee. A $250 security deposit is due by the final payment deadline for all programs. A fee of $75 will be retained from all security deposits to cover standard cleaning fees and general maintenance fees, including minor repairs and standard touch-up painting. The remaining $175 is refundable provided that: 1) no additional fees are assessed on-site for incidentals, damages or excessive utility usage; and 2) the API program fee has been paid in full. Housing for most year students during the period between the fall and spring semesters is not included in the API program fee (some exceptions apply). Most students take advantage of this time to return home to the U.S. or to travel around their host country. In most cases, API can arrange between-term housing for students in their host city for an additional fee. Refer to the city information sections for more specific housing information by location.

T u i t i on All programs include a fixed number of credits per term as part of the standard fee. The number of credits that a student can earn each session is detailed on each program page, and varies from 12-18 credits per semester session and 3-12 credits per summer session.

Each U.S. university sets its own guidelines regarding how it accepts credit from abroad. All API program participants are advised to discuss credit transfer policies with their home university. API strongly recommends that students obtain pre-approval for coursework abroad whenever possible and speak with their study abroad advisor to obtain the necessary paperwork. Students should also take an advisor’s contact information with them abroad, in the event that course offerings change once on-site. An official transcript from the accredited U.S. or foreign institution with an English translation (as needed) is sent to the registrar or study abroad advisor upon each student’s successful completion of a program.

Un d erstan d how u n i v ers i t i es m eas u re

c re d i ts

One unit of measurement that many American universities and foreign universities use to determine transfer credit is the CONTACT HOUR. A contact hour is a 50-minute block of time spent in the classroom. To determine transfer credit equivalencies within the semester system, divide the total number of contact hours by 15. For a quarter system equivalency, divide the total number of contact hours by 10. Based on the successful completion of an average course load abroad, each student should expect to receive: 150-280 contact hours per quarter/semester (10-18 credit hours per quarter/semester) or 80-135 contact hours per summer session (5-9 semester credit hours per summer session).

Grades abroad are affected by attendance and class participation in most programs. Failing to meet the established attendance requirements may result in a failing final grade and no credit transfer. Grades are assigned by the host institution.

API provides the following general guidelines for converting language courses abroad into the American system: LOWER DIVISION Beginning (100 level) – This level requires no previous language study. One semester of first-year, collegelevel language is generally still equivalent to beginning level. Intermediate (200 level) – To be considered for the intermediate level, students must have completed 2-3 semesters of college-level language or the equivalent (i.e., by testing out of your home university’s placement test or AP tests). UPPER DIVISION Advanced (300 level) – Advanced students have completed 4 semesters of college-level language or the equivalent. Superior (400 level) – The superior level is appropriate for students who have completed 6 or more semesters of college-level language or the equivalent.

API students participate in several excursions per session designed to help familiarize them with areas of France outside of the host city. The following is a comprehensive listing of all excursions for API Caen programs. All excursions are subject to change. Visit the API website for the most up-to-date excursions.

Chartre u se

spring Chartreuse is a beautiful region of mountains and forests and is known for the Monastery “de la Grande Chartreuse,” where a particular liqueur was invented and has been made by monks since 1605. A beautiful area to escape to, Chartreuse offers the opportunity to wander the incredible countryside of France.

Étretat

SUMMER 1* The little town of Étretat is located in the Pays de Caux, on a section of the coast of Normandy called “La Côte d’Albâtre,” and is renowned for its impressive white cliffs, featuring arches, a large rock needle and tunnels. Étretat’s fame was settled in the 19th century when, from a fishing village, it quickly became a fashionable seaside resort. It is known for being the last place in France from which the 1927 biplane The White Bird (L’Oiseau Blanc) was seen. French WWI war heroes Charles Nungesser and François Coli had been attempting to make the first non-stop flight from Paris to New York, but never made it.

G i v erny

SUMMER 2* Giverny offers visitors a treat as they visit the former residence of Claude Monet where the artist lived and worked until his death. This is where Monet found inspiration for his famous waterlily paintings.

C AEN e xcursions

H onf l e u r

SUMMER 1* Honfleur, in northwestern France, is especially known for its old, beautiful picturesque port, characterized by its houses with slate-covered frontages, painted many times by artists, including the ones that formed the école de Honfleur (Coubert, Boudin, Monet, etc.). Much of the history of Honfleur is founded upon the sea, both as a base for the fishing industry (some of which survives) and as a trading port. The basin and the tall, picturesque buildings that surround it have been hardly changed over the centuries.

SUMMER 2* Rouen is the capital of the Haute-Normandie (Upper Normandy) region and the historic capital city of Normandy. Once one of the largest and most prosperous cities of medieval Europe, it was the seat of the Exchequer of Normandy in the Middle Ages. Roen was one of the capitals of the AngloNorman dynasties, which ruled both England and large parts of modern France from the 11th to the 15th centuries. It was here that Joan of Arc was executed in 1431.

S trasbo u r g & Co l m ar fall This region is known for its artistic delights, cultural heritage, intellectual history and outdoor activities. With its monumental cathedral featuring carvings as delicate as any piece of lacework, Strasbourg is one of Europe’s most attractive cities. The entire town center has been listed as an UNESCO World Heritage Site. Colmar’s old town is stunningly beautiful and is also very well preserved. *Summer student excursions vary per term.

V A LL E Y spring Visiting the Loire Valley palaces is like visiting 16th century Renaissance France when fortified medieval fortresses were transformed into delicate castles inspired by Italian architecture. Such is the case of le Château d’Amboise where Leonardo da Vinci was buried. Le Château de Chenonceau was untouched by the French Revolution and is the only castle in the area built on a river. Mont

Louis XIV was so taken by the château’s splendor that he took the artists who worked on the building (the painter Charles Lebrun, the architect Louis Le Vau, and the engineer gardener André Le Nôtre) to work on his own palace – Versailles! Thus, the grand home marks the beginning of “Louis XIV style” architecture and landscape design.

Located on the River Tiber, the “Eternal City” was once the administrative center of the mighty Roman Empire, governing a vast region that stretched all the way from Britain to Mesopotamia. One must be prepared to step into the world’s biggest open air museum - the Vatican, the Coliseum, the neighborhoods - and be enraptured. t u s c any

It reached the height of its power in 1249 with the victory of the Fossalta battle when King Enzo, son of the Emperor Frederic II, was taken prisoner. In the charming historical center, among the best preserved in the world, many ancient palaces and churches stand as witness to the cultural relevance that Bologna has had over the centuries.

terre fall • S U M M E R 1 The Cinque Terre, five villages hidden in little coastal inlets and clinging to the rocks overhanging the sea, are located near of the Ligure Riviera. Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore form the heart of the National Park, proclaimed a monument to the heritage of mankind by UNESCO.

LUCC A

spring Lucca is a provincial town rich in history, tradition and culture, but it is also a premium tourist attraction. The town is unique for its intact 16th century walls that surround the historical center, isolating it from the modern suburbs, so that walking along its narrow streets (now a pedestrian area), one forgets about time, enjoying a much slower pace.

spring • fall • S U M M E R 1 Padova is one of the oldest cities in northern Italy and offers a dense network of arcaded streets opening into large communal piazze. It is the setting for most of the action in Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew.

PISA

fall There is much more to the town of Pisa than its famous Tower and marvellous Piazza dei Miracoli where it stands, but many other things as well. It is the city of the ancient Etruscan and Roman Port at San Rossore and the lungarni (the banks of the river Arno), making Pisa a unique and wonderful city.

an d sorrento SUMMER 2 Pompeii is one of the most significant proofs of Roman civilization and provides outstanding information on the art, customs, trades and everyday life of the past. The city was badly damaged by an earthquake in 63 AD and was completely demolished in 79 AD by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. Life came to a permanent standstill in what had been one of the most active and splendid Roman centers. Although this tragic event ended the lives of 20,000 Pompeian residents, the ash that buried the town served as a sort of mummification for the entire city. Sorrento is a resort town set atop rocky, picturesque cliffs along the Amalfi Coast offering breathtaking views of the sea. ROME

spring • fall • S U M M E R 1 & 2 With an almost uninterrupted history as an important center of power for more than two millennia, Rome is as close to eternal as it gets. Located on the River Tiber, between the Apennine Mountains and the Tyrrhenian Sea, the “Eternal City” was once the administrative center of the mighty Roman Empire, governing a vast region that stretched all the way from Britain to Mesopotamia. Today, it remains the seat of the Italian government. Be prepared to step into the world’s biggest open air museum.

The area features many hilltop towns, famous for the production of wine and olive oil. Thanks to ancient volcanic activity, natural hot springs are plentiful in the region. Of course, no visit to this region would be complete without a stop in one of these towns: Siena, San Gimignano, Pienza, Cortona, Arezzo, or Montepulciano.

spring • fall • S U M M E R 1 From the 13th to the 17th centuries, Venice was one of the most important cities in Europe. Its strategic location made Venice an important center of trade between the East and the West, and art and culture blossomed as well, leaving a legacy of amazing artistic and architectural treasures to discover.

VERONA fall • S U M M E R 1 Verona was home to Romeo and Juliet (visitors can still find their famous balcony here). Today’s Verona has much more to offer than just references to Shakespeare, including the Roman Amphitheater (which is still used today for operas), the market at Piazza delle Erbe (once the Roman forum), and the medieval streets by the Adige river.

API students participate in different excursions per session designed to help familiarize them with areas of Italy outside of the host city. The following is a comprehensive listing of all excursions for API Taormina programs. All excursions are subject to change. Visit the API website for the most up-to-date excursions.

P oss i b l e e x c u rs i ons m ay i n c l u d e :

aeo l i an i s l an d s The seven Aeolian Islands are situated off the north-eastern coast of Sicily. The Greek mythology ascribes the islands to Aeolus, and suggests that Odysseus temporarily sheltered there during his travels.

A G R IG E N T O

Taormina e xcursions

Agrigento was one of the most prominent cities of Sicily during the “Golden Age” of Greece (6th Century BC). It is home to some of the best preserved Greek Doric temples in the world. Listed under UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the most popular sites include the ‘Valley of the Temples’ and the white sand beaches.

c a l ta g i rone The culture of ceramics is what distinguishes Caltagirone from other towns in Sicily. Indeed, its history mirrors that of many others: the Romans, Arabs, Normans, Spanish and French all passed through leaving indelible traces of their presence. Caltagirone is brimming with splendid palaces and churches.

C ATANIA Catania is the 2nd largest city in Sicily. Bordering its landscapes is the famous volcano, Mt. Etna, towering high above the ancient city. Various Roman, Medieval and Baroque elements still adorn Catania’s intricate city streets. Catania is probably most famous for its large bountiful, colorful markets.

l a g h i d i m ar i ne l l o Constituted in 1998, the Natural Reserve of Marinello is known for its geographical diversity, and is one of the top places to visit in northeastern Sicily. The strange shape of the beach just under the cliff of Tindari is due to the accumulation of sand and to the landslide of rocks.

m o u nt E T N A To the ancient Greeks, Mount Etna was the realm of Vulcan, god of fire, and the home of the one-eyed monster known as the Cyclops. At approximately 3350 meters, it is Europe’s highest active volcano. In addition to the traditional tracking tours, there are also winter sports such as skiing and snowboarding.

G O L E D E LL ’ A LC A N T A R a Alcantara Gorge is a unique geological site, a canyon carved by the Alcantara River through the centuries of lava flows from Mount Etna. The trail along the river provides outstanding views, including the Terrace of Venus and the Balcony of the Muses.

PALERMO Sicily’s capital and largest city is located on the north coast. In the 9th and 10th centuries, it became the third great intellectual and artistic center of the civilized world, equal to Cordoba and Baghdad. Palermo now boasts unique Arabo-Norman art and architecture that attracts visitors from around the world.

ran d a z z o an d Cast i g l i one d i s i c i l i a Randazzo was miraculously spared by the Mt. Etna’s numerous eruptions throughout history. It enjoyed a period of prosperity in the Middle Ages which continued up to the 1500’s. The first inhabited center of Castiglione was founded in 496 B.C. and was a possession of Hippocrates, tyrant of Gela. Castiglione is known for its rich production of wine grapes, vegetables, citrus fruits, and excellent olive oil.

ROME With an almost uninterrupted history as an important center of power for more than two millennia, Rome is as close to eternal as it gets. Located on the River Tiber, the “Eternal City” was once the administrative center of the mighty Roman Empire, governing a vast region that stretched all the way from Britain to Mesopotamia. Be prepared to step into the world’s biggest open air museum.

S Y R A CU S E Syracuse is one of the oldest cities in Italy and one of the ancient world’s most powerful. It is where great scholars and classical world icons lived, studied, and invented. Today, it is a beautiful and vibrant city filled with warm, inviting people.

V E N DIC A R I A N D N O T O Vendicari, often referred to as “Fauna Oasis,” is a nature and marine reserve that stretches across the Siracusan coastline and consists of rocky inclines and beautiful isolated white sand beaches. Noto is one of Sicily’s most attractive Baroque towns.

Most API semester students live with a host family. Students who live with families are provided with breakfast and dinner daily. Families provide an amazing opportunity to experience Italian and Sicilian culture firsthand. Host families serve as a unique introduction into local culture, and may be made up of a married couple with children, a divorced or widowed woman with children still at home, or a family with some members living at home and others living outside the home. Taormina host families are very active in the community and with school activities, and are excited to host new students! Advanced Italian speakers or 2nd semester academic year students may choose to live in a shared apartment. Apartments are typically a 10-15 minute walk from the school. Most students will share a room with only 1-2 other students. All apartments come equipped with a kitchen, bathroom, and common areas. Washing machines are available, and students are responsible for their own meals. Students can opt for a single room for an additional fee. Summer students in Taormina are housed in a local pensione (guest house/hotel). The pensione is located in the city center, a mere 10-15 minute walk from campus. Students have a single room with a private bathroom. Daily breakfast is included at the pensione. January-term students may be housed with a host family or in a shared apartment. In both the pensiones and host families, students are housed individually so as to maximize their exposure to the Italian language. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––---–––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––– Housing photos on this page represent the standard API student accommodations.

Some of the medieval artisan traditions are still alive today, as seen in the daily open-air markets. API introduces students to the sights, sounds and art that embrace a visitor at every turn in Florence.

Students may also visit Latina, a province known for its mozzarella production and numerous seaside towns such as Terracina and Sperlonga, linked along the coast by national parks and archaeological sites.

spring Cádiz boasts over 3000 years of history and is one of the oldest cities in Europe. For many years, Cádiz was the link between Europe and the New World, which explains the many similarities between Cádiz and Havana, Cuba. A walk around the city center is a joy to the senses with the sea, the streets, the Cathedral dome and the colorful houses along the coast.

COS TA BR AVA spring • S U M M E r * Costa Brava means ‘Rugged Coast’ – with outcrops of the Pyrenees forming wild sea-cliffs. Secluded coves hide between the unkempt rocks, where tenacious pines cover the slopes right down to the mouth of the Mediterranean and sweeping sandy beaches provide a retreat. Located on the Girona coast, at halfway between the city of Barcelona and the French border, Tossa de Mar is an ancient fishermen’s village with an important historical background, that has been transformed during the last 50 years into an emblematic tourist destination of the Costa Brava area. Girona, founded by the Romans more than 2,000 years ago, is an exceptional old town that hosts one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Europe. COS TA

D O UR A DA fall • S U M M E r * With almost 60 miles of golden sandy beaches, la Costa Dourada stretches from the north of Tarragona (known for its well preserved Roman ruins) to the Ebro delta and is one of Catalunya and Spain’s favorite holiday destinations. Tradition and modernity coexists there, as one can drive in a matter of minutes from small fishing towns such as l’Ametlla de Mar to main touristic areas like Salou or even to Port Aventura, a big and exciting theme park. The mountain range is also close, and other highlights include great medieval monasteries and vineyards that produce some of Spain’s finest wines. Grana d a

fall Granada is one of the most enchanting cities in Spain. With more than a thousand years of recorded history, Granada enjoys one of Spain’s most important cultural and architectural patrimonies. Granada sites include two UNESCO World Heritage Sites - the Alhambra and the historical Moorish Albaicín quarter.

O F M A LL O R C A SUMMEr* Mallorca offers a unique combination of culture, nature and nightlife. It lies in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of mainland Spain and is one of Europe’s most fashionable holiday destinations due to its historical and cultural richness, as well as its beautiful beaches. ISL A ND

O F MENO RC A SUMMEr* Menorca is one of the Balearic Islands located in the Mediterranean Sea belonging to Spain. The island is known for its collection of megalithic stone monuments: navetes, taules and talaiots, which speak of a very early prehistoric human activity. Minorca is also well known for its traditional summer fiestas. M A D R ID

fall Spain’s capital blends the modern with an important cultural and artistic heritage. Three of the most important art galleries in the world (the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museums) are all located in the center of Madrid. All this, combined with the momentum of a society that is dynamic, liberal and welcoming, has turned this metropolis into one of the western world’s great capitals.

The 14th century Benedictine Monastery is where the monks worship Catalonia’s Patron Saint, the black Madonna of Montserrat.

fall One of the great cultural and intellectual centers of the world, Paris is felt by many to be the heart, soul, and imagination of France. Paris is full of amazing museums, architecture, music, fashion and beauty. Innumerable monuments built to reflect the glory of France and its rulers stand testament to the city’s rich history. The Louvre, a former palace and current home to the world’s largest art collection; Notre Dame, a grandiose jewel of the gothic era; the Eiffel Tower, a turn of the century masterpiece; and Montmartre, an artist’s haven, are only a few examples of Paris’ highlights.

Walled medieval towns such as Montblanc still retain their original cobbled feel, and the land is dotted with numerous small villages.

spring With an almost uninterrupted history as an important center of power for more than two millennia, Rome is as close to eternal as it gets. The “Eternal City” was once the administrative center of the mighty Roman Empire, governing a vast region that stretched all the way from Britain to Mesopotamia. Today, it remains the seat of the Italian government and the world’s biggest open air museum.

spring Seville, capital of the Andalucía region of southern Spain, is an unique example where history, tradition and modernity merge in an incomparable city. The core of Islamic Seville includes the area on the East bank of the Guadalquivir where the Cathedral, the Christian Alcázar, and the medieval quarter known as the Barrio Santa Cruz are located today. To explore the city’s narrow streets and smell the orange blossoms in Spring while mingling with people at a cafe is definitely an unforgettable experience.

SITGE S

SUMMEr* The coastal town of Sitges, by the southern coast of Barcelona, is renowned for its beaches, cultural heritage, Cinema Festival, Carnival and nightlife. In the late 19th century the town became the focal point for modernist artists (writers, musicians, critics, sculptors and painters) and was defined as ‘The Mecca of Modernism’. *Summer excursions vary per term and program.

Students can expect to advance their Spanish a minimum of two levels during the semester. Each student’s language level is determined by a placement exam administered upon arrival by the University of Granada.

For many years, Cádiz was the link between Europe and the New World, which explains the many similarities between Cádiz and Havana, Cuba. A walk around the city center is a joy to the senses with the sea, the streets, the Cathedral dome and the colorful houses along the coast.*

Three of the most important art galleries in the world (the Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza Museums) are all located in the center of Madrid. All this, combined with the momentum of a society that is dynamic, liberal and welcoming, has turned this metropolis into one of the western world’s great capitals.

Tourists and locals alike flock to this southern costal town to enjoy its mediterranean climate and experience its ancient heritage. A city has been in this location for nearly 3,000 years, making Málaga one of the oldest cities in the world!

fall Morocco has a unique cultural, historical, ethnic, and geographical richness. Throughout history, the Strait of Gibraltar has been the gateway for Europeans into Africa. Visitors to this fascinating African country can enjoy a range of great attractions: Morocco’s medinas, or old districts, are magical places to explore. These walled districts with their maze-like streets function much like they have for centuries. The list of things to do in Morocco is a long one and travelers find that the country’s diverse landscape (mountains, desert and beaches) lends itself well to all kinds of activities.

One of the great cultural and intellectual centers of the West, it is felt by many to be the heart, soul, and imagination of France. Innumerable monuments built to reflect the glory of France and its rulers stand testament to the city’s rich history. The Louvre, a former palace and current home to the world’s largest art collection; Notre Dame, a grandiose jewel of the gothic era; the Eiffel Tower, a turn of the century masterpiece; and Montmartre, an artist’s haven, are only a few examples of Paris’ highlights.

The park covers approximately 60 km of coastline, accompanied by cliffs of awesome grandeur. It has a wild, elemental feel and is far enough off the beaten track to seem positively deserted compared with most Andalusian beaches. It is a perfect place for hiking, sunbathing, picnicking, and relaxing.

The core of Islamic Seville includes the area on the East bank of the Guadalquivir where the Cathedral, the Christian Alcázar, and the medieval quarter known as the Barrio Santa Cruz are located today. To explore the city’s narrow streets and smell the orange blossoms in spring while mingling with people at a cafe is definitely an unforgettable experience. Tol ed o

Students who choose to live with families typically share a double room with a fellow API student and are provided with three meals per day and laundry service. Families provide an amazing opportunity to experience Spanish culture firsthand. Host families serve as a unique introduction into Spanish culture, and may be made up of a married couple with children, a divorced or widowed woman with children still at home, or a family with some members living at home and others living outside the home. Students can opt for a single room for an additional fee. Students who choose the shared apartment option generally live with other API students and also benefit from having meals, laundry, and cleaning provided by the Spanish owner. Three meals per day are also provided with this option. A family member may share the apartment. Some families spend a great deal of time with the students, while others may not join the students for meals or other activities. Residencias offer students the opportunity to live with local Spanish students and other API program participants. Residencias are not like American “dorms”, but rather, they are arranged more like traditional boarding houses. Students typically share a room and common bathroom. Everyone has access to the common living and TV areas. Three meals/day are included in a common dining hall (at specified dining times) and laundry service or facilities are available and regular cleaning provided. Mealtimes are set according to each residencia, and the meal schedule and menu will be posted upon arrival. On Sundays and during holidays meals may not be served but students may use a small kitchen equipped with a refrigerator, microwave oven, etc. Laundry service is available and regular cleaning is provided. Some residencias are co-ed. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––---––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

UFV is a private, Catholic university located in the northwestern Madrid suburbs by the town of Pozuelo de Alarcón. Originally a branch of Complutense University, it formally separated to become its own entity in 2001. During the first 4 weeks of the semester, students take an intensive Spanish language course for 20 hours per week. Following this course, students take a course in contemporary Spanish society or cross-cultural communication that meets twice per week for 4 hours per day. The remainder of their time each week is spent working in an internship or service-learning placement. A personal tutor oversees the internship or service project, and students are asked to participate in regular meetings and reports on their progress. UFV has partnerships with 70 organizations for service learning projects (including placements working with disabled, elderly, children, immigrants, single mothers, and more), and agreements with over 1,000 companies for placements of all kinds in Madrid.

fall One of the most intriguing cities in the world, Paris is full of amazing museums, architecture, music, and beauty. One of the great cultural and intellectual centers of the West, it is felt by many to be the heart, soul, and imagination of France. Innumerable monuments built to reflect the glory of France and its rulers stand testament to the city’s rich history. The Louvre, a former palace and current home to the world’s largest art collection; Notre Dame, a grandiose jewel of the gothic era; the Eiffel Tower, a turn of the century masterpiece; and Montmartre, an artist’s haven, are only a few examples of Paris’ highlights.

Students who choose to live with families share a double room with a fellow API student and are provided with two meals per day and laundry service. Families provide an amazing opportunity to experience Spanish culture firsthand. Host families serve as a unique introduction into Spanish culture, and may be made up of a married couple with children, a divorced or widowed woman with children still at home, or a family with some members living at home and others living outside the home. Students can opt for a single room for an additional fee. Students in Madrid may also choose to live in a residencia. Residencias are smaller than American dorms and house between 15-90 students. The rooms are double-occupancy, and there are common bathrooms with showers. Three meals per day, laundry service, and cleaning are provided. Students may also choose to live in apartments located throughout Madrid. Students generally share their apartment complex with other Spanish families, as opposed to other students. Apartments may be co-ed, and the number of students sharing the apartment varies based on the apartment size. Students may have single or double rooms depending on the number of bedrooms. Meals are not included in this option. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––---––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

API students in Salamanca can choose to live with a host family or in a residencia. Students who choose to live with families generally share a double room with a fellow API student and are provided with three meals per day and laundry service. Families provide an amazing opportunity to experience Spanish culture firsthand. Host families serve as a unique introduction into Spanish culture, and may be made up of a married couple with children, a divorced or widowed woman with children still at home, or a family with some members living at home and others living outside the home. Students can opt for a single room for an additional fee. Students in Salamanca may also choose to live in a residencia. Residencias are usually small, family-run student residences that house international students and occasionally Spanish students. Traditionally 1-2 students share a bedroom, and a bathroom is shared by multiple students. All students have access to living, TV, and common areas. Residencias are generally co-ed and accommodate 2-30 students. Students are provided with three meals per day. Meals are not provided during school breaks and holidays. ––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––---––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––––

C á diz spring • fall Cádiz boasts over 3,000 years of history and is one of the oldest cities in Europe. For many years, Cádiz was the link between Europe and the New World, which explains the many similarities between Cádiz and Havana, Cuba. A walk around the city center is a joy to the senses with the sea, the streets, the Cathedral dome and the colorful houses along the coast. C ó r d oba

spring • fall • S U M M E R Córdoba’s rich cultural legacy stretches back over 2,000 years. Once the capital of one of the Roman provinces, it was captured in 716 by the Muslims. At that time, it was one of the largest and most sophisticated cities in the world, with a population ranging between 250,000 and 500,000 inhabitants. Its unique mosque was constructed 1,100 years ago and has 1,000 columns. Other sites of interest include the Roman bridge over the Guadalquivir, the Plaza de la Corredera, and the Jewish barrio and synagogue.

Second is Cáceres, a Medieval and Renaissance city with walls that were built by the Romans and Almohads. Third is Trujillo, the cradle of more than 500 conquerors and home of the Sanctuary-Monastery of Our Lady of Guadalupe, a UNESCO World Heritage site.

In 1977, this area was declared a “Reserve of the Biosphere” by UNESCO due to the exceptional variety and wealth of its fauna and flora. It consists of a massif karstic limestone with closed river basins and has a mountain lagoon called ‘Laguna del Perezoso’. The park is host to several beautiful towns and villages; Grazalema, El Bosque, Ubrique, Zahara de la Sierra, Benaocaz, Benamahoma, Prado del Rey, and Villaluenga del Rosario are within the Cádiz side of the park.

It is situated next to the famous Tower Bridge, which spans the River Thames. Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the houses of Parliament and Big Ben are all equally famous historical buildings. London is a magical city with plenty to offer any visitor.

fall One of the most intriguing cities in the world, Paris is full of amazing museums, architecture, music, fashion and beauty. One of the great cultural and intellectual centers of the West, it is felt by many to be the heart, soul, and imagination of France. Innumerable monuments built to reflect the glory of France and its rulers stand testament to the city’s rich history. The Louvre, a former palace and current home to the world’s largest art collection; Notre Dame, a grandiose jewel of the gothic era; the Eiffel Tower, a turn of the century masterpiece; and Montmartre, an artist’s haven, are only a few examples of Paris’ highlights.

It was the capital of Spain from mid-6th to the mid-16th centuries, as evidenced by its impressive medieval architecture. Known as the “City of the Three Cultures,” it served as a hub for Jews, Moors and Christians and has today become a symbol of religious tolerance. Walking through Toledo is like taking a magical journey into the past.
