Why SYA?

Unleash your potential through study abroad.

Students who study abroad gain critical skills that colleges and employers expect in today's world. We're talking real-world experiences- like overcoming unexpected obstacles with creativity and resolve. Or collaborating with diverse groups of people. Skills like these are invaluable- no matter where life takes you.

Through study abroad, you'll master another language and live inside a new culture. You'll begin to make intellectual and personal discoveries you couldn't imagine back at home. It's an experience that requires everything you've got, and it gives back 100-fold. You'll return home with the ability to think more critically, communicate more clearly, and run your life more independently. You'll see the world as a richer, more complex place in which to work, live and explore.

Are you ready to learn beyond borders? You can, with SYA.
