Imagine spending an academic semester aboard a dedicated passenger ship, traversing the globe with 600 university students from around the world!
The Scholar Ship is a Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd. initiative developed in collaboration with the following international universities:
Al Akhawayn University, Morocco
Cardiff University, United Kingdom
Fudan University, China
Macquarie University, Australia
Tecnológico de Monterrey, Mexico
University of California, Berkeley, USA
University of Ghana, Ghana
During a 16-week semester, students will pursue numerous opportunities through academic field studies, shore excursions and independent travel. The port program is highly integrated into the academic program, making for a sophisticated learning experience.
Onboard, students will be completely immersed in a multicultural living environment. The international student body and staff form a learning community that integrates academic, cultural, and social experiences in programs that would be virtually impossible to duplicate elsewhere.
Students are being recruited worldwide to ensure an intercultural learning environment. Worldwide voyages aboard The Scholar Ship will be 16 weeks in duration, offering a compelling itinerary to eight ports spanning five continents in which several days are spent to provide students an enriching experience through their participation in field programs, excursions and independent travel.
