Summer/Winter Programs

If you are looking for a shorter program that takes place during the summer, then attending a Summer Study Abroad Program is the perfect fit for you! Summer Programs take place during the Summer A or Summer B Terms, and they typically last between 2 to 5 weeks. These programs have both domestic and international destinations, and they are taught in English by Embry-Riddle (ERAU) Faculty. Summer Programs allow students to experience a Study Program Program without spending a complete Fall of Spring Semester away.

Suggestion: The ERAU Office of Global Engagement strongly advises program participants to purchase fully-refundable airline tickets and/or trip cancellation insurance after they are committed to a program to safeguard against losses or penalties related to airfare should a program be cancelled, a change of dates, or unforeseen circumstances that would cause the student to withdraw from the program. The Office of Global Engagement assumes no responsibility for such losses or penalties.
