About Global Semesters

We design and operate innovative university-level study abroad programs, primarily for students from the United States and Canada.

We are best known for our thematic regional and global study programs and have the ability to operate sophisticated co-curricular itineraries. In any given year, our students cumulatively visit over 70 cities in over 20 countries, from Buenos Aires to Beijing.

Our background is in academia. Global Learning Semesters was spun out of the University of Nicosia, the largest university in Cyprus, to focus exclusively on designing study abroad programs. Our senior management team has over 100 years of cumulative experience in higher education, study abroad, risk management and international business.

We have served on the standard setting bodies in study abroad, helping design the principles of best practices that will guide the leading study abroad firms over the next decade.

We care about increased access to and diversity in study abroad and work closely with our affiliates and partners in the study abroad offices of home universities in the United States to support these objectives.
