A Parent’s Perspective – API in Bhutan

Taktsang Monastery, Bhutan

One of the most unique destinations offered through API is Thimphu, the capital of the Kingdom of Bhutan. To truly imagine this beautiful place is to take yourself out of Western Hemisphere culture completely. Bhutan sits on the ancient Silk Road and most people here practice Buddhism or Hinduism. Students who want a truly immersive study abroad experience can sign up for API’s Direct Enrollment & Internship Program through Royal Thimphu College.

A Parent’s Perspective

This review of our program in Thimphu comes to us from API parent Colleen Galloway!

“My Son Paul is the one pictured above, and he had a wonderful experience spending a year with API in Bhutan at RTC. It was a life changing experience. He is in his last year of college now in Global Studies with a concentration in South Asia. He now speaks Dzonga, Hindi, Nepali, Tibetan and Russian… along with English. He is hoping to be accepted into the Peace Corp when he graduates. API was wonderful to work with. I wish all of you peace as you send your son or daughter off for a life changing experience. Enjoy the adventure they are on.”
