Study Abroad and Away will be offering several programs in a virtual format in 2021, including the Virtual International Partners (VIP) program, Faculty-Led Programs (FLP) and Summer School Abroad (SSA) programs. Please click on the links below for more details.
Virtual International Partners (VIP) Programs - Spring 2021
Virtual International Partner (VIP) programs provide San Jose State University students the opportunity to learn about another culture while communicating with an international partner for a semester-long virtual exchange. Participants are connected with partners and virtually meet to have discussions on a variety of topics (ex: food, holidays, family, school, etc.) and learn about each other. Students can either take a 1-unit course alongside the program (currently only offered to CHHS students) or participate in a non-credit-bearing version. Click the links below for more details.
