    Minds Abroad offers study abroad, student travel and gap year programs in Asia, especially in China and India. Because of the way our programs integrate our students into the local communities of their host countries, we were recently recognized as a “Top 10 Program in Citizen Diplomacy” by the Center for Citizen Diplomacy/US State Dept.

    Study + Travel (China, India) – These study abroad programs incorporate morning classes, afternoon volunteering or interning and weekend travel to sites of cultural and historic interest.

    Morning Class and Afternoon Activities Program (China) – This is a less structured program which does not include a weekend travel component. The program incorporates morning Mandarin classes and afternoon volunteer or language exchange activities.

    Volunteer Program (China or India) – Together with Impact Abroad, we offer a free volunteer program in the Fall, Winter and Spring, not Summer.

    Internship Program (China) - Through full or half day intern placement in various sectors in Kunming, China students can learn about how industries are run in China.

    Trimester Program (China) - Journey across China, combining classes for college credits, a internship or volunteer placement and travel to various sites of historical and culture importance.

    Teach + Travel (China) A paid teaching placement for native English speakers (non native English speakers will be considered if they have near native fluency) with either travel or cultural activities each weekend for almost an entire year.
