SAF Programs

SAF provides summer, semester and academic year study abroad opportunities in cooperation with prestigious universities in the US and Canada, UK and Ireland, France, Germany, Spain and Switzerland, and Australia and New Zealand.

Undergraduate Study

  • Academic – Students enroll in regularly offered undergraduate courses and are assessed on the same basis as degree-seeking students.

  • Language – Students enroll in full-time intensive second-language courses and often earn transfer credit from the home university.

  • Language + Academic – Students enroll in full-time intensive second-language courses prior to enrolling in regularly offered undergraduate courses. Students often need to meet host university language proficiency requirements before progressing to academic study.

  • Pre-Sessional Language + Academic – Students with a second-language proficiency level just shy of host university requirements enroll in a pre-sessional course. Typically held over the summer, the course is designed to prepare students for an upcoming semester of academic study.

  • Concurrent Enrollment – Students enroll in a combination of part-time intensive second-language courses alongside regularly offered undergraduate courses.

  • Academic Internship –Students enroll in a credit-bearing internship program that combines formal academic study with career-related work placement.

  • Undergraduate Research – Highly qualified undergraduates considering advanced degrees enroll in this program to work closely with faculty through supervised research at a prestigious Western research-focused university

Summer

  • Summer Language – Students enroll in intensive second-language courses during the summer, often earning transfer credit from the home university.

  • Summer Undergraduate Research – Highly qualified undergraduates considering advanced degrees enroll in this program during a few weeks in the summer to work closely with faculty through supervised research at a prestigious Western research-focused university

Graduate Study
