Why Study Abroad in South Africa
South Africa is considered one of the most diverse countries in the world, in every sense of the word. Geographically, it boasts an impressive range of climates and natural features, from mountains and high plateus, to beautiful, Mediterranean-like coastline, and desert. It's a blend of a variety of cultures and ethnicities, including Sub-Saharan African, European, and Asian. It's considered a developed and commercialized country, but there's a large disparity between the "haves and have nots."
CISabroad offers semester and summer study abroad programs in beautiful Stellenbosch, a college town set outside of Cape Town. Stellenbosch is revered for its wide tree-lined streets, cafe culture, European heritage, and location in the Cape Winelands, flanked by prominent mountains. Choose from a variety of African and South African topics such as Apartheid, HIV and AIDS in Africa, Human Rights, and South African History, as well as broader topics, as you study for a semester or summer.
