Important Announcement

Study Abroad 2020 Cancelled due to COVID-19

Student Information for Study Abroad 2020 Trips

After careful consideration, PPCC Leadership has made the difficult decision to cancel the May 2020 study abroad trips. With the ever evolving concerns and spread of Covid 19 across the world, we have made the decision to suspend all May study abroad travel.

This decision was not made lightly but out of an abundance of caution toward the health and safety of our students. 

***We are working on a negotiation for a better rate of reimbursement. For the time being, please do not contact EF Tours yet.

We will keep you updates as we know more. Thanks for your patience.***

Full details can be found here.

What is Study Abroad?

Studying overseas is not simply tourism. These courses are powerful experiences and contain academic elements that reach far beyond the walls of a traditional classroom. Besides focusing on the educational concepts related to the places that are visited (like a monument’s historical or cultural relevance), these trips encompass invaluable knowledge on handling foreign currency, traveling safety, navigating using the area’s local transportation, bridging communication barriers, and so much more.

Former Study Abroad participants help prepare students before they make the trip, during which the students are accompanied all the while by trained faculty members - ensuring safety amidst the adventurous environment. If you, as a PPCC student, are yearning to experience beautiful natural wonders, dive into exotic cultures, and receive a new global perspective, then this is your prime opportunity.
