Program description:
Arcadia University offers semester or year-long study abroad experiences in more than 60 programs of study throughout 10 countries--from the tropical locale of Townsville, Australia to the bustling metropolis of Dublin, Ireland.

Arcadia is unique in that most of its program facilitate direct enrollment into local universities in Australia, New Zealand, England, Ireland, Scotland, and Wales, rather than placing you into what is called an "island" study abroad program where you would just be alongside other American students. In addition, they also offer programs in Mexico, Greece, and Italy as well as some summer opportunities.

Arcadia also offers international internships --prime opportunities are available in Canberra, Australia's capital city, as well as in Dublin, Edinburgh, and Sydney.
Housing varies by locations (although most places offer dorm or apartment-style living), as do available courses. For more information, see

LONDON-BASED PROGRAMS: *If you are interested in studying in London, please review the information for the SCU London program. Arcadia programs in London are generally only approved if you wish to a) study abroad for a full year or b) have an academic need that is not fulfilled by the SCU London program.
