Explore More This Summer with SAI SCOPE
Summer Combo Programs
January 30, 2023

Summer is a time to explore. To see the world. To step outside of your comforts. To make memories. To make friends. And yes, to get ahead in some schoolwork.

Not much can beat studying abroad in the Summer. Europe’s energy is palpable as the days get longer, the nights warmer, and tourists flock into the historical streets. But where in Europe to study?

Choosing the perfect location to study abroad can be difficult. Some students feel particularly drawn to a location, while others choose based on language interest, friends, ease of travel, cost, course selection, prior experience, and much more.

What if you didn’t have to choose just one place? In Summer 2023, we are offering 3 different Summer Combination Programs and Experiences (SCOPE) that combine two (or more) different locations and host schools, at a reduced cost!
