Nepal is one of the most diverse countries in the world and a semester abroad here could open up a whole new world to students given the opportunity. There are dozens of programs to choose from, but here are a few definitely worth checking out.

This inter-disciplinary course lets students work with local leaders to advance local community development projects while experiencing the area’s rich culture. You’ll help create and implement plans for local business owners, farmers and others who want a sustainable way to ensure a better future.
Dragons Semester & Study Abroad Program
Traditions of the Himalayas allows you to trek to some of the country’s most exotic locales, learn about the history of mysticism and witness firsthand the effort it takes the different communities here to rebuild after devastating earthquakes and other disasters.

Work the World
Work the World offers semesters abroad for those studying in the medical field and has a great opportunity to learn and work in Pohhara. They offer experiences in dental, nursing, medical and therapeutic disciplines where you get firsthand instruction while helping offer treatment to people who might not otherwise have access to it.

So, how do you keep yourself from sweating and stinking up a new city? Try these tips.
We can see it now and remember when it happened to us: Watching as the black car icon loops around and around, seemingly endlessly, and our wait time on the rideshare app continually changes.

Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
