KPU International offers Field School programs that can take you to places all around the world!
Field Schools are amazing opportunities that involve you travelling with a group of fellow students to another country and then studying a topic there in depth. It's also a great chance to see if you'd like to take part in longer exchange programs! When you're in a Field School, you study outside of the traditional classroom setting with a group of other students. Beyond academic training, it's also a chance for you to receive hands-on experience in another culture and/or environment.
Your Field School adventure starts with you attending classes at KPU with your fellow students/adventurers and an instructor. After that, you will fly up, up and away, travelling abroad to continue your education in the field and acquiring new and exciting stories to tell all of your friends! Click below to learn more!
