Florida dreaming!

Student throughout Europe are encouraged to spend time in another European state via the EU’s Erasmus programme. But have you ever wondered what the education system is like further afield?
Would you like to get first-hand experience of studying at an American university, even if you’re not actually enrolled on a degree course? Well, now you can, thanks to INTO – an organisation that brings together international students and universities.
The American University Experience offers foreigners the chance to spend six or nine months learning English at a number of locations, including the University of South Florida in Tampa. With average temperatures of 28°C and 56 km of beautiful sandy beaches, when you’re indoors studying you’ll be thankful for the air conditioning of the recently renovated state-of-the-art language centre located in the heart of the USF campus.
Students attend a minimum of 21 hours/week of English classes, must complete home assignments and are encouraged to participate actively in all aspects of university life: academic, social and cultural, alongside the American students. The beauty of this course is that there are no entry requirements, the minimum age is 17 and all levels of English are catered for, even total beginners.
Courses last for 24 or 36 weeks with monthly enrolment dates. Single or shared room accommodation is available on campus, with and without a meal plan. A student visa is required.
INTO offers similar courses at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Marshall University in West Virginia and Oregon State University in Cornwallis.
