We are Different!
You are not like everyone else who has gone abroad, you have your own aspirations for this incredible experience. We understand that, and we have built our programs to serve your individual interests.
A Focus on You as an Individual
Our focus is to provide programs and services with your individual goals in mind so that you can get more out of your experience than if you went through another organization or on your own. Our programs are built around a unique Discovery Model which is delivered by some of the best staff in study abroad, both in North America and overseas, in order to provide you with an individualized experience through discovery in 5 key areas: personal, academic, cultural, social, and professional.
We have so many program options & are confident we can find the right program for you!
You may wish to study and live abroad on a semester or year program, complete an internship to strengthen your resume, attend a short-term program during one of your academic break periods, complete a research project at an overseas campus, or earn your entire degree abroad.

The Discovery Model
Discovery starts from the moment you contact us. The Discovery Model is the framework our staff uses to enhance your experience. Get in contact with us and we can give you personalized program recommendations based on your goals and interest. Then throughout the pre-departure process, our Program Managers will give you individualized attention to ensure that all of your questions are answered and you are well prepared for your experience.
Once abroad, our in-country staff lead students on a on a multi-day Bridging Cultures Program to ease the
transition and accelerate exposure to the host country. Throughout the program, the in-country staff in your host city will plan additional excursions and suggest individual activities that you can undertake during your program in order to get the most out of your experience in the 5 key areas of discovery. These activities cannot be found in a guide book, as they are sourced through the local knowledge of our resident coordinators. Learn more about the Discovery Model and see sample activities>
Enhanced Student Experience
The end result of how we do our work is that our participants have an experience that is simply better because we were a part of it. They develop in the 5 areas of discovery and they grow as individuals - while staying safe and secure throughout their time abroad. Don't take our word for it - meet students who recognize the impact that studying abroad through GlobaLinks Learning Abroad has had on their lives>
