UW Advance is customized to the needs of your university and its students. We are happy to design a program to incorporate site visits, workshops, courses, community engagement, and service learning opportunities for a variety of fields. In addition to thematic curriculum, we handle all wrap-around service to provide a truly exceptional experience: airport pick up, in-programming transportation, room & board, meal plans, and cultural programming.

Our team can offer optional English as a Second Language courses to further students’ ability to critically examine and complement the academic area of focus.
