vs
If you take classes at a university abroad with local students, you will experience the day-to-day life of a local student at that institution.
If you take classes at an institution designed for study abroad students, you will likely be in class with mostly other American students, making it more challenging to get to know locals.
Some programs allow students to take a few courses at a local university and few at the study center. In this instance, you will find the program might have more support in some respects and less in others.
Hybrid/Combination
