Programs in South Africa 

The diverse landscapes and cultures of South Africa make it a prime location for a truly engaging experience. Head out on safari, cage dive with great sharks, learn to surf, and get to know the locals. South Africa has enough adventure opportunities to keep you busy for a lifetime.

How do I apply?

Prior to applying directly to the program through CIS Abroad, the Office of Global Opportunities recommends that all students complete the mandatory OHIO Foreign Study Checklist (FSC). The FSC helps students determine how credits from abroad will transfer, the total cost of their program, how they can apply financial and scholarships, and outlines health and safety resources. 

Start the FSC by setting up an appointment with Ellie Koewler, CIS Abroad Advisor in the OHIO Office of Global Opportunities by clicking here
