Why Spend a Semester Abroad With MEI?

Imagine studying Buddhism in the temples of Angkor Wat, exploring the Great Wall of China in Beijing and snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef. Picture yourself taking a cruise in Ha Long bay, studying the Ming Dynasty in the Forbidden City, or seeing the effects of the Western world on the development of Communist China. The best learning lies in experiencing the world around us where there are no desks, there are no walls, the world is the classroom.
