Studying abroad is one of the most transformative experiences students can partake in. It fosters personal growth, opens new perspectives, and enriches academics in a way that cannot be replicated on campus. Participating in a short-term program is a great way for students to receive official Salve credits, work with Salve faculty and get a taste for international travel without committing to a full semester.
Short-term programs are designed to accommodate a variety of students. Whether a student is a biology major looking to study a diverse array of species, a nursing student trying to find time in their coursework to study abroad, or simply looking to fulfill core requirements, there is a program for everyone.
Students interested in any of the above short-term programs may now open an application on ViaTRM and apply by the respective deadline.
