STEP 1: Tell us about your plans
The first step is to fill out our short custom program form so we can get an idea of your goals, schedule, and budget.

STEP 2: Program design
We work with you to find the perfect balance of activities, locations, and academics based on the key learning outcomes you are seeking. Once we agree on the program content (itinerary and focus), dates, and costs, we will produce an informative registration and orientation booklet for you to distribute to your students and their families or use to assist with recruitment.

STEP 3: Travel Arrangements
Our team will handle all program logistics, including international flights, and work closely with you to ensure that students and their families are comfortable with all aspects of the program and answer any questions that are raised.
