I will forever be grateful to ASA for the study abroad experience they provided for me. Any qualms I had about living in a foreign country were eased by their informative pre-departure packet and friendly staff, who were always a mere phone call or e-mail away to answer any questions I had. Being part of a smaller program allowed me to instantly bond with others from ASA right away, which made the transition that much easier. Also, ASA is great about introducing you to your new home and helping you learn the ropes. I would recommend ASA to anyone wanting to study abroad.

I had an absolutely incredible time studying abroad with ASA. One of the greatest assets to ASA was the smaller program size. I felt like I had quality time with my resident director and we were all in her best interest. Being in a small group made me feel like I was actually immersing myself in a foreign country, rather than being a 50+ traveling group of Americans sticking out wherever we went. Being in a smaller group gave us more opportunities and also the courage and confidence to meet more locals and have a more real, local experience. I was really happy with my school and felt like my host family did a terrific job in looking out for me and introducing me to Catalunian culture.
I highly recommend Academic Studies Abroad for people wanting the best of both worlds, the opportunity to study abroad with a well-known,reputable organization and support, but also the opportunity to immerse yourself in a culture and country.

I had a great time with ASA. The program was really small which ended up being a great thing! I knew everyone by name and could easily and quickly get a hold of our site director. It was a very personalized program and I really enjoyed it. I would recommend it to anyone!

Which program did you most enjoy in Spain?

ASA took all the stress out of planning my study abroad, leaving me free to fully enjoy the experience. They had immediate answers for my questions, were warm and helpful, and from the very start earned my complete confidence that I made the right choice by studying abroad through them.

The company did a wonderful job preparing me for my trip. My experiences were all very smooth and gave me little stress. Staff on campus and from ASA were all very willing to help before and after my arrival.
