Study Abroad Programs that DON’T Require a Student Visa
Spring 2021: Semester & Quarter
August 12, 2020

There are many aspects to preparing for a study abroad term, from packing to medication to booking flights, and of course, the student visa application process.

To make the pre-departure process simpler and to give students more time to plan for their term, we’ve amended several program dates to create programs under 90 days. US citizens studying in Europe for less than 90 days do not need to obtain a student visa, so we’ve curated a list of all SAI Spring Semester & Quarter 2021 programs under 90 days.

In addition to the semester & quarter programs under 90 days featured in this blog, SAI offers several Jan Term and Maymester program options. Learn more here!

To learn about more of our amended policies in Spring 2021 to help make your experience easier, see SAI Spring 2021 On-Site Program Policies.
