Blog of the Week: Academic Programs International (API)

GoAbroad Blog of the WeekIt’s Friday — and time for GoAbroad’s Blog of the Week! This week’s selection is:

The Academic Programs International (API) Blog

The Official API Blog  is the voice of Academic Programs International (API), a comprehensive and enriching study abroad program provider. The API blog offers advice and answering questions about studying abroad from different perspectives– including students, program administrators, university administrators and university faculty. On top of staff bloggers, there are also student bloggers sharing their current experiences with API.

Why We Love It

API seeks to help students  grow more self-aware and culturally sensitive to the world around them, and we love that the blog is a direct extension of this goal. Every post acts as a great resource for study abroad students, whether aimed at alumni, prospective students or current participants abroad. The posts and high quality images highlight  different aspects of study abroad–even those you might not think about, such as reverse culture-shock and racial issues and concerns abroad.

API regularly updates content on the blog and the amount of conversation in the comments show that readers enjoy the advice offered. Because there are so many perspectives offered, the API Blog sets itself apart as an in-depth and multi-dimensional resource. The clean layout and design of the blog also makes it easy to navigate, so you’ll always be able to find posts of interest to you!

If you want to evolve from a tourist to a resident to a global citizen, check out the API Blog for more information and search for all your study abroad options!

Every week GoAbroad features an abroad-related blog as our selection for Blog of the Week. The featured blog has been chosen because it features interesting and well-written abroad or travel-related experiences.
