You can study abroad in a couple of ways – through Kentucky Wesleyan College faculty-led programs and with third-party organizations and schools external to us.
Faculty-led study trips

External organizations and schools
Programs we have worked with:
- KIIS – Kentucky Institute for International Study – based at Western Kentucky University, KIIS offers programs in non-English speaking countries. But don’t let that discourage you! KIIS courses are taught in English by faculty from US, mostly Kentucky, universities and colleges. Often, there will be an optional course in the language of the site country. KIIS offers both long-term (semester) and short-term (3-6 weeks) programs around the world. Popular KIIS programs include Tanzania, Spain and Italy.
- ISA – International Study Abroad
- AIFS – American Institute for Foreign Study

Oceans Research offers an opportunity for undergraduate and graduate students around the world to join its team of researchers in Mossel Bay, South Africa. We collaborate with numerous South African and international universities on a wide range on research projects.During our month long experiential learning course, students gain hands-on practical training in conducting field research on South Africa’s marine megafauna, including the white shark. Students are not just observers but rather they are an integral part of the research team, collecting data, while gaining valuable insight and training in the latest methods and seamanship to equip them with the skills necessary to be successful marine researchers. African Campus hosts all students participating in the program, creating an all-inclusive educational experience under one roof working towards the conservation and protection of South Africa’s marine species. If you feel that this opportunity and collaboration is something you or your students might be interested in, I am happy to answer any questions you or your students may have.
