Summer Study Abroad Opportunities

Are you interested in spending 2, 3 or 4 weeks in Korea, Japan, Finland or Germany this summer?

Short-term study abroad programs are offered over the summer, and are ideal for students with limited time and resources, but still offer great language acquisition, cultural interaction and intellectual growth. Short-term programs offer students the opportunity to immerse themselves in aspects of another culture – the language, literature, history, art and archaeology – as well as have the experience of living abroad.

Explore through our current short-term language and culture programs below. Some of the selected schools even offer free housing and program fees exclusively to our AU students!
