Work with SAA to start planning your 2024 faculty-led program today!

Are you still on the fence about running a faculty-led program next year? Don’t wait — with the fall semester approaching, now is the perfect time to plan your program and recruit students! SAA offers faculty-led programs in over 40 countries, in a wide variety of academic disciplines, at affordable and accommodating prices for your institution. Over 200 institutions choose SAA for their faculty-led programs every year!

This includes CCID member institutions like Davidson Davie Community College. Kristi Louya, Coordinator of Student Scholarships, said of her Cultural Studies program in Japan this year:

“After 3 years of rescheduling due to Covid, our study abroad group FINALLY traveled to Japan from March 4-11 (2023) & we had an amazing time! SAA reps were quick to respond anytime I had a question, and they planned out a jam-packed study abroad trip for us. They paired us with an awesome (and very patient) trip guide (Hayato, aka “Harry”), who we hope we could use again if our college does another trip to Japan in the future. Thanks for the wonderful memories!”


We are dedicated to providing high-quality programming to meet each institution’s specific needs. From booking flights, identifying professional guest lecturers, to 24/7 on-ground support, our programs are 100% customizable.
