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.
