Passage International : Study Abroad, Experiential Education Program in South Asia

Study Abroad, Experiential Education Program in South Asia


Your language class will consist of one and a half hours of instruction 5 days a week for up to 52 total hours, depending on the length of your program. Learning to communicate with the people around you provides an important entry into the host community. Students find that people appreciate their effort to learn the local language and are eager to practice with them.

In addition, students who opt for a twelve-week Personal Passage or longer can choose a volunteer placement in a field of their interest. There are several and varied charities and social service organizations to choose from. They work with on such issues as health, sanitation, urban planning, ecological preservation, and more. (For more information, please refer to the independent study projects section of this website).

If students wish to travel further at the end of the program, Passage will help them to determine the various options and costs.

This type of program is for those who are motivated and independent. It is ideal for individuals who wish to study a particular aspect of a new culture; those who desire the freedom to truly design their own program or who would like a more independent experience.
