If you are 13 years of age or older and want to study for up to 4 terms (one year) in country South Australia, then our Regional Study Abroad Program is for you. This short term study and cultural experience program will give you the opportunity to participate in school and community activities and experience the Australian way of life in areas such as the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula, Mt Gambier, Port Lincoln or Kangaroo Island.

Please contact us if you are interested in a program of less than 10 weeks.

If you will be studying for longer than one year, you can enrol in our High School Graduate Program.
