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.

This means you will have to learn and navigate a new university system in a single term with less support.
Assistance with this process is available usually through the host university’s international office, however it is your responsibility to seek out the resources.
Many students feel that this higher level of autonomy helps develop confidence and self-advocacy skills.
Remember, be patient with yourself as this is part of the experience.
Question: Who will you take classes with?
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.

You might find there is a higher level of support because the institution’s purpose is to cater to study abroad students.
Even though the program might offer more support, it is still your responsibility to be a self-advocate.
Combination
: 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.
