Non-UD Study Abroad Programs Application 

Students have the freedom to take their education around the globe!   If UD does not have an active faculty-led program or institutional partnership abroad, students have the ability to study through Non-UD Programs throughout the entire world.  Please feel free to visit our office to review hard copy materials from many provider programs, or use the hyperlinks provided below for two major study abroad online search engines.  (Please note, that all outside programs must first be approved by the Education Abroad Office before students are eligible to participate)
For any UD student participating in a Third Party/Non-UD Provider program, this application is a requirement.  There are several on-campus procedures that you need to be aware of and are responsible for, and by working with the Education Abroad Office you will be well-prepared for your study abroad experience!

  • Government Financial Aid, including grants and loans, can be transferable but are subject to award availability and guidelines.
  • If students intend to use their government awarded student aid they will be required to complete a Consortium Agreement with their chosen provider and the Flyers First Office. (The Consortium Agreement can be found within their UD application materials or can be obtained at the Flyers First Office)

Billing

Third Party Providers may also have orientation requirements that align with their program.  Students will also be responsible for completing any, or all, offerings mandated by the provider.

Additional Information and Things to Consider

"Choosing to spend 6 months in France the summer before and the fall semester of my sophomore year has been one of the best decisions that I have made in college. I knew that spending that much time in France would help me to become fluent in the language I love, which it did. What I didn't know was the amount of growing I would do as a person while abroad, and how that would impact my life after. Going to a different country, I learned about new cultures and met people from around the world. I learned that I am capable of doing anything I put my mind to, from having full on conversations in French with locals in to navigating traveling around Europe by myself. I created memories that will last for a lifetime! Don’t be scared of the unknown – push yourself to explore and be adventurous! I can guarantee that you won’t regret it!"

Highly recommend AIFS! The program supports you every step of the way! Wonderful Experience!

Spring 2015 Participant
API Granada is a fantastic program. API is a great, affordable company, and Granada is small enough to walk around, but large enough that there's always something to go do or see. The culture there is so rich, and it's like nothing else you'll see in Europe.

  Brie Alexandra Sandridge, Fall 2014 Participant
API was the perfect program to travel with. I felt like I truly encompassed the full abroad experience with both the challenging academics and cultural experience that was offered. The API program includes trips to various cities around Italy, while also providing cultural activities such as wine tasting and free tours throughout the semester. The program directors cared about each student and were always available to help anyone at any time. I'm so happy I chose API and feel they truly made my experience what it was: simply amazing.

  Alexandra Marie Breeze, Fall 2013 Participant
This program is absolutely wonderful, especially for the price. They take very good care of you from the day you submit your application until well after the program. I got to experience so many wonderful things that I never would have been able to if I didn't go through API. Definitely reccommended!

  Lindsay Irene Dunbar, Summer 2015 Participant
This program enhanced my world view tremendously. It's almost a bad decision NOT to study abroad at some point throughout your college experience because there might not be another chance to see the world once you graduate. This program was a great way for me to experience other cultures and learn a new language without having to figure out everything on my own. I highly recommend studying abroad because I gained new friends, new knowledge, and amazing new memories I will take with me throughout the rest of my life.

  Daniel John Wolfe, Spring 2015 Participant
My four months in Rome were the best four months of my life. I studied at the Loyola John Felice Rome Center and had the most incredible experience. From the moment I landed in Rome in January I was in love with the city. I made some great friends both from throughout the US and in Rome who I will stay in contact with forever. Studying abroad was everything I thought it would be and a lot more. It was rewarding, challenging, enriching, and provided me with memories I will never forget. The most rewarding aspect of studying abroad is the self-confidence it gives you. You travel from new city to new city, sometimes alone, and are forced to jump out of your comfort zone and meet new people who speak a different language than you. You have to navigate public transportation without being able to read the signs. You point at food on a menu because the name looks cool but you have no idea what you are actually eating. At first, it is scary and intimidating, but you soon grow used to the unknown and grow to love it. Coming home, you want to take public transportation instead of driving everywhere. You understand that getting lost isn't always a bad thing and allows you to see some pretty cool sites along the way. You become confident in yourself and your ability to be independent and know there is almost nothing you can handle. Although I would love to paint a perfect picture of my four months abroad, it was also challenging at times as well. You were challenged to break down any walls you may have and be ready for anything. You will often be traveling in groups with people you just met maybe a week or month ago. You are forced to become best friends right away and get to see a whole other side of them that you may have not seen for a few years in a normal situation. It is challenging at times to compromise on what you would and would not see in certain cities due to your limited time in each city and attempt to appease everyone. However, these challenges helped me grow a lot during my four months. As someone who is always trying to take charge and make decisions quickly, I often had to force myself to step back and let others make the choices and just go with the flow. That is one thing you will learn to do while study abroad: go with the flow. There is often no need to have a schedule because realistically you will not follow it. One of my favorite things about studying in Italy is how laid back they are. No one is ever in a rush. As a fast walker I would often be looked at as I passed Italians walking down the street at their normal leisurely pace. It forces you to slow down and appreciate the sites you see and the people you meet. It causes you to form memories that you continue to think about several times even a few months later. Not a day goes by when I do not catch myself day dreaming of standing in the main park of Rome, Villa Borghese, watching the sunset over the Vatican with the same man playing "What a wonderful World" on his piano. These beautiful memories are the ones that stay with you. They take me back to my favorite city in the world and remind me of what studying abroad is all about. I absolutely fell in love with every aspect of Rome. The people, the cobblestone streets, the history, the food, the pace of life, the gelato, the good wine, everything. I will be forever thankful for my study abroad experience and all that it provided me. I was able to visit 10 different countries in four months and live in the beautiful city I have seen. I have grown a lot, been challenged more than I imagined, and made some friends with whom I will always share a unique bond. If I had one regret of studying abroad it would be that I didn't go for longer. I loved every second I was there and am counting every second until I go back.

  Michelle Ann Saheb, Summer 2015 Participant
The CEA program was an amazing experience and continuously exceeded all of my expectations. Along with the language immersion aspects, CEA offered activities almost every night and led weekend excursions. The advisors really wanted to ensure that you go the most out of your time with the program and were truly immersing yourself in the local culture. The classroom environment was fun and the teachers were all very helpful and my langauge improved dramatically. Other than the classroom time, CEA is so great because it allows you to make friends from different colleges all across the country who you are able to share this awesome experience with.

Testimonial:
I thought API was a great program to go through because they planned a lot of the trips that I went on. They organized hotels, transportation, food, tours and activities for four out of the five weekends I spent abroad this summer. It was very convenient to have all of the travel details planned out.
