Study Away

The mission of the North Carolina Community College System is to open the door to high-quality, accessible educational opportunities that minimize barriers to post-secondary education, maximize student success, develop a globally and multi-culturally competent workforce, and improve the lives and well-being of individuals. At Forsyth Tech, we understand that global experience is an important part of a 21st century education. Study abroad and domestic travel programs give our students the opportunity to gain a new perspective, learn about diverse cultures, and develop a better understanding of how our world is interconnected.

South Africa is considered one of the most diverse countries in the world, with Cape Town being the heart of it all. Students from Central Piedmont and Davidson County CC and are invited to apply for this faculty-led service learning program in partnership with EDU Africa.

Participants will explore Cape Town’s city life, be educated in the HIV/AIDS impact, view the hospital where the world’s first successful heart transplant took place, explore the realms where the iconic Nelson Mandela was imprisoned, experience ethnic cuisine, and walk among the penguins of the famous Boulders Beach.
