Program Description:

Looking for something completely new? Wanting to really step out of your comfort zone and experience a different culture and way of life? Tired of the “traditional” study abroad destinations? Then you should study abroad in Bhutan with API and have the academic and cultural experience of a lifetime!

Located between India and China, Bhutan is a landlocked Himalayan paradise. Often referred to as the “last Shangri-la”, Bhutan is known for its natural beauty, diverse landscapes, friendly people, and its official national philosophy of “Gross National Happiness“. To visit Bhutan is to step into a different world – one where concepts such as karma, happiness, tranquility, resourcefulness, and curiosity combine to transform you!

(Welcome to Bhutan!)

API offers students a wonderful opportunity to experience the Bhutanese culture and way of life through study abroad in the capital city of Thimphu. API students will study with Bhutanese students at Royal Thimphu College, Bhutan’s first and only private university institution, administered by the Royal University of Bhutan. Students will take 3-4 courses in subjects such as accounting, computer science/IT, literary criticism and theory, natural resources management, and sustainable development. They will also take a credit-bearing internship with a local or governmental agency (such as the Gross National Happiness Commission) or an international NGO.
