Earn college credit abroad while exploring a topic in-depth and engaging with faculty from the School for International Training.

The Experiment, through its partnership with the School for International Training (SIT), offers college credit-bearing programs that help students engage with the most critical global issues of our time. Students who participate on an Experiment program for SIT college credit gain desirable technical and interpersonal skills that colleges seek. Credit-bearing internship programs are designed to give students an opportunity to explore a particular discipline and career area.

Developed and approved by SIT, The Experiment’s intensive curriculum is rooted in experiential education. Examine critical issues as you engage with faculty from SIT, local partners, your program group and learning community, and host communities. Through coursework, community and homestay (if applicable) experiences, strengthen your writing and oral presentation abilities, and develop skills in a foreign language, intercultural communication and leadership, problem-solving and critical thinking to prepare for future academic studies and professional opportunities.

Gain professional experience with credit-bearing group internships through community-led projects or field interaction with experts at international organizations, and develop proficiency in intercultural communication, project leadership, and professional office management.  

Students on credit-bearing programs will be issued a transcript from School for International Training, a U.S.-accredited academic institution, that can be transferred to colleges and universities according to the institution’s credit transfer policies. 

The Experiment’s academic programs offered in partnership with SIT (founded as the School for International Training) are accredited by the New England Commission of Higher Education (formerly the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc.). Inquiries regarding the accreditation status should be directed to the administrative staff of SIT.
