New virtual study abroad program for Europe

Summer 2020 has a new look and feel for Arcadia Abroad students! Join Arcadia faculty in London, Dublin, Edinburgh, Barcelona, Granada, Athens or Rome for a range of fascinating online courses and internships to earn up to nine credits in eight weeks. Choose one course per session and add on an internship if you wish. Virtual internship placements* are with employers in London, Rome and Athens.

This innovative program will enable you to have a version of study abroad, joining an online community of students taught by Arcadia faculty overseas who are eager to bring you into the world of their course and of their location. Let’s make the most of Summer 2020!

*Placements are on a first come, first served basis so early application is recommended.

  • Arcadia faculty from Athens, Rome, Barcelona, Granada, London, Dublin and Edinburgh are very excited to move their classes online, while giving you a flavor of what local life is like in their countries.

  • Mix and match one course from any location with a six-week, virtual internship in London, Athens or Rome - employers from a wide variety of sectors are very keen to have students complete online projects for them.

  • Project placements will match with your career goals to give you relevant experience for your resume. Placements cover a wide selection of activities online, from social media assignments for businesses and web content creation, to pursuing research for business development projects and developing communication plans and content for non-profit organizations, and much more. A digital resume workshop is also included.

  • Courses will be brought to life online, with virtual excursions, discussion groups and activities. These may range from virtual tours of key museums or sites relevant to coursework, to other culturally significant locations, guest lectures by host country experts in the fields of study, vibrant discussions facilitated by Arcadia Abroad faculty and live event streaming.

  • Our exciting and varied events schedule will give students the chance to look beyond their classes to engage with the local culture and meet others in our virtual community. All our common events are free and will mix students from across the US with faculty and staff across Europe. You'll be surprised what we can do online! From quiz teams to cook-alongs and coffee mornings, we will mix fun with exploration.
