There was an explosion on an Underground train in the Parsons Green area of London at 8:20AM BST today, resulting in multiple injuries (none reported to be life-threatening). CAPA activated its Locator Plan following this incident and has confirmed the well-being of all students. Our sympathies are with those affected by this incident. (Last updated Sep 15, 11:19AM EST)
We have exceptional relationships with our Schools of Record, work closely with our Academic Advisory Board, and have successfully completed the Forum on Education Abroad Quality Improvement Program, demonstrating our commitment to the integrity of our programs as we create impactful academic experiences.
Each year we award $1.5 million in study abroad scholarships, grants, and affiliate benefits allowing students to reduce tuition costs so they can concentrate on a purposeful study abroad experience.
CAPA is a leader in health and safety management, endorsing NAFSA’s Inter-organizational Task Force on Safety and Responsibility in Study Abroad guidelines. We maintain a comprehensive emergency response plan, provide regular staff training, and retain the services of a professional crisis management organization.
CAPA is committed to encouraging a safe and healthy environment at all of our study abroad centers. We provide health insurance for students and visiting faculty, train our staff to provide guidance for a variety of health issues, work closely with students with disabilities, adhere to Title IX guidelines, and much more!
CAPA’s commitment to diversity is academic, experiential, and personal. Our students are welcomed into an inclusive environment and given the tools to analyze, explore, and embrace difference within the global city where they are studying.
CAPA not only offers an innovative and high impact approach to international education, but also consistently demonstrates the expertise and attention to detail needed to ensure each individual student participating in their programming walks away with a positive experience. The team seamlessly combines relevant academic coursework with hands-on internships across the globe, allowing students to apply the theories discussed in class to cross-cultural professional work settings. I am continually impressed by CAPA's professionalism, timeliness, and emphasis on student outcomes.
