Westminster, CO (PRWEB) December 19, 2008
AsiaLearn, a student study abroad program, announces the launch of their new website. AsiaLearn is an educational program of GlobaLinks, and a sister program of AustraLearn, which sends college students to Australia, New Zealand and Fiji. With main offices located in Westminster, Colorado, AsiaLearn provides college students from around the U.S. and Canada with opportuntities to study abroad in China, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.
Director of Students Services and Programs Michael Swift has put together a program that offers cultural and educational exchanges that range from 2-week short courses to semesters and even year-long study programs. AsiaLearn participants can participate in classes in their host countries that are taught in English, but students are encouraged to study languages as part of their academic program abroad. The study abroad China and semester abroad Japan programs occur on university campuses, and credits earned abroad through study abroad Asia programs can be applied to undergraduate degree programs offered in the United States and Canada.
AsiaLearn offers students an excellent opportunity to study in Asian countries, and they take the hassle out of what would be an enormous undertaking for students trying to study abroad on their own. AsiaLearn provides for academic and cultural counseling, and they facilitate the admissions and course enrollment process abroad. Guaranteed housing is provided for every student. Full insurance and emergency response plans are in place, based on their in-country expertise and history of health and safety factors.
The study abroad Asia program also offers students in-country orientation, as well as help with obtaining visas, passports and registering with United States or Canadian embassies in-country. Students, parents and advisors also have round-the-clock access to emergency services.
The new AsiaLearn website features easy to navigate links detailing information about the many programs offered, universities and destinations. As well, there are links designated for information specifically for parents, advisors, students and alumni. Full information about the study abroad Asia semester or year abroad, summer programs and a spring break alternative program in Japan are fully outlined. Students intent on Asian study have the opportunity to create a MyLearn account on the new website, which helps students stay organized throughout the process of applying for a foreign study program. This, combined with a great deal of information provided about the host countries involved, and the cultures that make these areas home, make the AsiaLearn website an informative stop on the way to a great study abroad Asia experience.
