Adelante Abroad

Provider

What were you doing in 1999? That is when Adelante Abroad sent its first candidate to Madrid, Spain, to do an International Internship Program there. She participated in a 6 month program, in a graphic design internship with a mid-sized company and lived, at first, on her own in a great little downtown apartment. By the following month we sent over two more candidates and have never looked back.

Internship, Semester & Summer Study, Teach and Volunteer Abroad programs define our menu of offerings and expertise now. Yes, you have your own room in a central, shared apartment, but meals are typically not included because we want you to grocery shop in your new country. Yes, we have staff on site full time but do they call you every day to check in? Nope. They are there if you need them but are trained to give you space to bump into things, make mistakes and finally find, on your own, how you fit in to your new country & home.

    Adelante's study abroad program exceeded my expectations, I received equal levels of cultural experiences and academic knowledge. The program's lecturers were beyond knowledgable about their respective subjects and wanted us to have the best time possible. This is the easiest and funnest way to earn some college credit whilst you are a in another country.

    The staff did struggle with communication to the students about daily activities but it allowed us to learn to be flexible. It was frustrating at times because our course paperwork was not outlined in an orderly fashion but was ultimately finished.

    Overall the experience allows participants to juxtapose management systems in Scotland with those in the United States.

    How could this program be improved?

    -I would change communication between instructors and having a schedule prior to the visit of all the participants.
    -I would also change the nutrition of the program. I would have to pay extra to add protein to my meals because it was seldom an option for the program students.

    I absolutely loved this program! The equine classes were very interesting and informational. The fitness class was a lot of busy work (I would recommend a computer for access to typing). The instructors were very helpful anytime you needed them. Riding class was a blast and you get to ride different horses to help you develop as a rider. Both the instructors were positive and very smart. As for the culture, you definitely become more diverse. Aside from the Scottish students We got to met some French exchange students and students from England visiting for the Highland Show. Weekends were usually busy but well worth it!

    How could this program be improved?

    I would make sure that the rules are more clear. There were no major issues but there was some confusion on some things but were resolved no problem.

    The Scottish Ride

    Though I have only been here for a week and a half I have had great time. There is some scheduling problems and lack of communication but overall everything has worked out for the best. I came here with no English ridding experience and the instructors are very helpful and great instructors. The classes are interesting and have several activities that allowed me to review material I already learned and to retain it better. Exploring the surrounding area has been a blast and I have learned so much about the culture and see some spectacular sights. I am extremely excited for what the program has planned for us and what other adventures we might embark on.

    Scottish Adventure

    This program allows you to adventure around Scotland and learn about anatomy and physiology as well as learning how to come up with a fitness program for an extremely fit horse. You get the chance to adventure around different parts of Scotland and you can very easily get into Edinburgh if you want a night out.

    How could this program be improved?

    The wifi is not the best all the time, but you are able to do what you need to do. Honestly, any problems that you had allowed you to work it out with some of the other people on the trip and I think that brought us closer together.

    I cannot say enough good things about my experience in Scotland. Every aspect of the trip was very pleasant, from the classes on campus to the touring of the country. We got the perfect blend of education and riding, as well as sightseeing and experiencing the culture of Scotland.
    Oatridge Campus is a very beautiful place to spend time at. Plants and flowers everywhere, trails to hike, animals to see. The staff are unlike any other. They are always smiling, asking how you're doing and if everything is okay. The moment you need something, they're ready to help. I've never met a group of such genuinely kind and caring people as those who work on Oatridge's campus.
