How to Apply

If applying for another academic year, a student must complete another application and submit all required application materials. The APU Study Away programs with a Feb. 1 application deadline are: China, Ecuador, Los Angeles Term, Norway, and South Africa programs (both locations-Pietermaritzburg and Capetown).
