    Best Study Abroad Programs – Summer & Year Around !

    Avoid the highly expensive packaged programs of other providers that are “profit focused” and a total waste of money. Go with CSA instead and save money! Since 1990, CSA has offered low cost, non-profit, fully accredited programs worldwide that are fun to attend, can live with local family, engage in cultural activities, excursions, meet international students, and you can earn college credit as well.

    At CSA, we provide students, adults, and groups with exciting study programs abroad. With our summer study abroad listings, you can study the language and culture in Europe, Asia, Latin and South America. See Program listings in main menu. Learning another language and experiencing the culture are skills you will use throughout your life. Your experience will look great on resumes and transcripts, for employers and schools value international exposure. Thousands of students have participated in these programs, and CSA has been around for over 20 years – since 1990. Join us !

    For Students / Parents – Support Message:

    Programs are fully accredited, non profit and provide excellent support services. With CSA, you will have the emergency contact info for the program, as well as housing (if included), provided with your confirmation documents (admission docs). Once you arrive and check-in, the partner staff there will take good care of you. Confirmation documents (admission docs) are sent after payment is received. General safety tips are also mentioned in “Travel Info” page of the Resources section (main menu). Additional tips and useful web-links are provided with your confirmation documents. Parents are welcome to travel (escort) their son / daughter to destination.

    Also, in regards to starting the program…..all students travel independently to the program location. Once you arrive and check-in, you meet the other students there as the program begins. Easy to do, and arrival instructions and contact info is included with your confirmation documents. Independent travel gives you the flexibility to travel on “your own schedule” and you usually save money booking your own tickets. Some parents accompany their daughter/son to the program location and stay at a nearby hotel for a few days. Overall, avoid the highly expensive “packaged group” providers that are “profit focused” and a waste of money. Go with CSA instead and save money $$, as well as have more flexibility. Better to just meet-up with other students at the program location. In addition, airport pick-up (escort) service can be arranged for several locations if desired.
