Generally, our fall semester begins in late August and runs until mid-December, our spring semester from mid-January to early May, and summer sessions begin in mid-June and run through mid-August. There are slight adjustments every term to accommodate holidays and our calendars also include important academic deadlines, like the end of add/drop periods. Academic calendars are country specific, so please be sure to choose the correct one.
Tuition and fees include all courses and course packs; pre-departure and on-site orientations; housing; program-organized excursions; cultural and co-curricular activities; supplementary lectures and special events; medical insurance, including medical evacuation and repatriation and security evacuation coverage; host country phone and SIM card; and an AMIDEAST grade report. For more detail on expenses that Tuition and Fees do not cover, please check the links below.
Our country-specific student handbooks are a great resource for students, dealing with questions of academics, housing, and even packing! We do update the handbook regularly, so there may be changes. We also ask all students to sign a Student Agreement & Release prior to going on program, so you can review that here as well.
Our programs offer a variety of classes including Modern Standard Arabic, Colloquial Arabic, Media Arabic, Community-based Learning, and several Area Studies classes from different disciplines. If you're curious to see what topics are covered or need to confirm whether a class will count for your university, please download the latest available syllabi here.
