Parents: Learn More

 

Our program gives your daughter or son the opportunity to explore a new country they've never visited, explore a topic they are passionate about in-depth, and return to college with renewed passion for their studies.  Pure Study Abroad provides adventure with no frills, which helps give students confidence to pursue one big project at a time and to develop real-world skill sets that will be useful in any profession, career, or vocation. 

 

SAFETY.

Traveling abroad always presents hazards and risks, but we do our best to plan events with your student's SAFETY in mind.  Students have free time every day in the program, so we cannot guarantee security -- but you can remind your student to follow our program handbook recommendations.

Every staff member of Pure Study Abroad does our part to make sure your student has everything they need: WiFi access, emergency contact information, alerts from the U.S. State Department, and the Smart Traveler’s Enrollment Program.

VALUE.

Your student is studying abroad both for the adventure and to add unbeatable VALUE to their college experience. To help prepare students for life after college, we offer more than just tests and quizzes, but challenging scenarios of real-life interaction with foreign citizens that requires thinking on your feet. 

Learning firsthand through immersion and pursuit of independent projects around the world provides the chance to also tell a compelling story to future employers and graduate school / fellowship admissions committees.

HEALTH.

While your student is abroad with us, we want them to stay HEALTHY.

Traveling to a new country for the first time is exciting, but it should also be treated with extra precautions. New food, new environments, and new methods of traveling can lead to occasional sickness, so we offer two resources to ALL students before departure: What To Do If You Get Sick While Traveling & the CDC Travelers' Health Recommendations.  We also enroll all of our students in HTH Worldwide Health Insurance for added safety.
