API scores big on study abroad rankings

The 2012 Abroad101 Study Abroad Rankings presented by STA Travel were just released, and once again API was well-represented among the top study abroad programs.

The full rankings included 11 categories, such as the “Top Program Providers” – in which API was listed among the top 5!

API’s program at Jagiellonian University in Krakow was the featured program for Poland, which was rated #1 on the list of  “Top Non-Traditional Countries

In the category of “Most Livable Cities“, API was happy to see that we have programs in the cities ranked #2 (Dublin, Ireland), #5 (Galway, Ireland), and #10 (Cork, Ireland ). Cork was also listed #7 in the “Friendliest Cities” category.

Finally, in the category of “Top Foodie Cities“, API was proud to discover that we have programs in the cities ranked #5 (Florence, Italy), #6 (Rome, Italy), and #10 (San Jose, Costa Rica)… we’re actually getting hungry just thinking about this list!


We would like to give a big thanks to all of the students who shared their API experiences on Abroad101, and to Abroad101 and their sponsor STA Travel for compiling such an exciting list! Congratulations to the other programs also honored!
