  • The following programs generally require a full-year commitment
    • Australia, Canada, Denmark, Japan, South Korea, and most United Kingdom locations. 
    • Occasionally an institution will have additional space and offer a few Spring Semester options, but in general you will need to commit to a full year for these locations.
