SAF Scholars Agree Past scholars attest to the practical value and life-changing experiences of studying with SAF.

Diya Liu UCLA I really appreciate SAF for helping me get the chance to experience campus life at UCLA. This 6-weeks’ experience will definitely be my lifelong memory. I want to share my story and true feelings with other students who also have the dream of studying abroad.

Geming Liu Vanderbilt University Professors are generally very approachable. They will challenge you, but also provide you with necessary help.

Mahiro Watanabe Arizona State University After I came here and met so many friends, I found all of them to be awesome, kind and cooperative. And I noticed that it is necessary for us to [see] with our own eyes and think for ourselves.

Sobin Lee University of Edinburgh This experience has shaped me to become a more tolerant and empathetic person than I could have been without it.

Chloe Teoh University of Bristol I would never trade my study abroad experience for any other, and I urge many who have a dream to study abroad to go for it wholeheartedly, because you will come back a new person, changed in perspective and mind.

Manxhi Ye Academic Program Alumni I love New York since it’s a great city and people are really nice and friendly to others. I think people here hold their dreams - they are dream catchers.

Hear From Our Partners University partners from across the globe praise the value of working with SAF.

Paolo Daniele University of Oregon Working with SAF is such a breeze and a big bonus for the University of Oregon! The staff is very caring, highly responsive and easy to work with, and now they are the standard that I hold all other partners to. Thanks to SAF, we have been able to host a much larger number of students from areas in Asia where we do not have existing partnerships and this has helped us considerably towards achieving our diversityenhancement objectives. Thank you SAF!

Laura Shier Lewis & Clark We have worked with SAF since 2010. SAF is professional and extremely responsive in assisting us and students who apply to our program. They work with us to identify students who are a good match for our program and school. We have enjoyed a very collegial relationship with SAF and all of their employees.

Stephanie Nixon University of Manchester We have worked with SAF since 2015, and have been impressed with how well-prepared the students joining us have been. SAF staff has also always been helpful and responsive whenever we have contacted them.

Enhance your experience

Access SAF’s Beyond the Classroom for unique activities and additional study or discussion options.

Tetsuya University of California, Berkeley - Virtual Academic Program Although it was online and I didn’t get to see the full spectrum... it was really interesting to me nonetheless, to see how UC Berkeley professors, or at least the two professors that I learned from, approached their classes, and to see their style of education. So, I think studying abroad, even if it’s academics alone, would give you a broader perspective on education in general and also what you can have as a choice in the future if you decide to continue onto a master’s, like me, or PhD.

12

studyabroadfoundation.org


SAF Beyond the Classroom is provided to students enrolled in virtual courses with SAF. Students can join weekly virtual classes exclusively available to SAF students to enhance their virtual coursework experience.

Where Will You Live Dormitory

Student Apartment

Example 1 Stay type: dormitory Where? On campus Where you eat: university cafeteria Perfect for the typical Western university experience, dormitories are on-campus buildings specifically for students of the university to live in.

■ Most rooms are for 2 to 3 people. Some dorms have more-expensive single rooms

■ Dorms differ. Some have in-room bath and

toilet, others have single-gender showers and toilets shared by all students living on a floor

■ To eat, you pay for a meal plan provided by the university’s buffet cafeteria, restaurants, and cafes

Example 3

Homestay

Example 2 Stay type: student apartment Where? On campus or in the local neighborhood Where you eat: self-catering in the kitchen Share an apartment with other students attending the same university. This is a place to build enduring friendships with your study-abroad family.

■ Bedrooms are either for one person in a private

room or shared by 2 to 4 people, each in single beds depending on the price you pay

■ To eat, you cook your own meals in the apartment’s shared kitchen or explore the neighborhood’s restaurants

Example 4

Stay type: private apartment Where? Off campus Where you eat: self-catering in the kitchen

Stay type: student apartment Where? On campus or in the local neighborhood Where you eat: self-catering in the kitchen

Usually near or easy to get to from the university, private apartments are shared by students, usually from the same university. Some apartments are in the same building as non-student residents.

To immerse fully in the culture, your host university or a homestay agent can place you with a homestay family. You live alongside the family, sharing life, meals, and conversation with them.

Helpful Hints For Your Search Grade point average (GPA) ■ Required language skills are subject to change without notice ■ Some faculties and majors require higher language proficiency / GPA than the school’s standards ■ Each faculty and major field sets TOEFL / IELTS requirements and may define specific scores for each section

■ Evidence of learning history may be requested as well as language / GPA expectations ■ Contact SAF if you don’t meet the criteria

Application criteria ■ To apply for SAF study abroad programs and undergraduate courses, you need a GPA of 2.0 to 3.7 or higher. Speak with your SAF representative for details of your chosen university’s GPA standards

■ You need a GPA 2.0 or higher to apply for language enhancement programs, but there is scope to accommodate lower than 2.0, so talk to SAF

Faculty, department, and major lists ■ Faculty, department, and majors lists may change from semester to semester ■ Some faculties and departments restrict access based on academic history, grades, and English proficiency

■ Some majors and classes are extremely oversubscribed or only accept limited numbers of students ■ It’s safest to assume your first-choice major or class will be unavailable, so consider alternate options to avoid disappointment

Hundreds of years since its founding, the University of Oregon (UO) remains the largest in the state of Oregon, but its classes remain small, with a 17:1 student-teacher ratio. In this way, you may enjoy the perks of a large American campus (sporting events, social clubs), while benefitting from personalized instruction that is characteristic of smaller universities. Eugene’s official slogan, “A Great City for the Arts and Outdoors”, describes the lifestyle you could live there. Recreational activities such as cycling, running, rafting and kayaking are among the most popular things to do in the city Eugene. Don’t miss the Oregon Festival of Music in August and the Asian Celebration in February (which highlights the history and cultures of the countries that make up the continent), and the weekly Saturday Market, where you may shop crafts, souvenirs and more.

With a maximum of 18 students in each class, you can expect to experience the personalized and welcoming community firsthand. What’s more, nature abounds on this park-like campus. Outdoor activities are common—it’s no surprise, as the campus reflects the city around it. Victoria is considered one of the best cycling communities in Canada. Activities occur throughout the year, as the city has some of the mildest weather in Canada. By taking a quick 15-minute bus ride, you can enjoy all the amenities and charm of downtown Victoria. Better yet, take a leisurely 20-minute stroll from campus to reach the ocean, a wonderful park, and shops and cafes selling everything from local produce to coffee.

The center of the Roman Empire for hundreds of years, Rome’s place in world history is fully cemented today, much like the iconic monuments that line its piazzas, like the Colosseum, the Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. For thousands of years, Rome has been a major player in Europe’s development, including its role in WWII, and there’s much to be learned from the impressive influence of Italy’s storied capital throughout the ages. Today, Rome stands as one of the most recognizable and romantic cities in the world, with breathtaking art, mouthwatering cuisine, and the world’s smallest country Vatican City.
