Each semester is divided into three 6-week blocks. The new registration tool shows the courses available at each Global Institute location (Berlin, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Copenhagen, London, Madrid, Paris, Rio de Janeiro, Rome, and Santiago) in each block, and how the courses align with our six academic tracks (Business; Communication, Journalism, and New Media; Global and Community Health; International Relations and Political Science; Language, Literature, and Culture; Sustainability and Environmental Sciences; Internships and Research Projects).
The tool can be used to explore popular study combinations around a theme such as Medicine in the Modern World (with courses in Copenhagen, London, and Cape Town), Old World, New Media (with courses in London, Rome, and Madrid) or Spanish Language Immersion (with courses in Madrid, Buenos Aires, and Santiago).The tool allows you to download course syllabi so you can evaluate which combination of courses best fit the student’s academic plan. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, there is also a chat window that offers the ability to ask questions.
Best of all, once the student has selected their study abroad block combination, the details are passed on to the next step of the application process so there is no need for students to apply for each block or location separately.
