Profile: SIT makes Americans’ study in the Middle East a home away from home

Deciding to study abroad in the Middle East can be a very challenging choice for an American student and his or her family to make. Safety concerns and cultural differences can hinder a successful study experience. But there are programs that offer students a guided path into Middle East culture. The School for International Training, or SIT, uses its location in Jordan as a gateway into the Middle East. (Soon, SIT is opening a branch in Cairo, as well.) Their on-site classes, home stay placements and unique curriculum help to make a student’s transition from Western culture to Eastern culture as smooth and as rewarding as possible.
