STUDY ABROAD IN EUROPE

About Term One

Roam the hallowed halls of Oxford University, gaze upon great works of art and world-famous landmarks, visit castles and palaces, and see the seat of the Roman Empire with your own eyes. During Term One of Global High School, you’ll experience the best culture and history Europe has to offer.

Begin this term in one of the United Kingdom’s most impressive seats of learning: Oxford. Enjoy a true university experience in Oxford, the city of dreaming spires, and stay in residence at Oxford University, the perfect home base for exploring this historic university. Visit the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology and punt down the River Cherwell before making your way to Spain.

Head south to the Mediterranean shore and wander through the beautiful quarters of Barcelona, immersing yourself in Catalan language, culture, and cuisine. Sun yourself at the glamorous Sitges Beach; be awestruck by examples of Antoni Gaudí’s architecture, including the Sagrada Família and Park Güell; and study the riches of the Picasso Museum.

Take wing over the north of the Tyrrhenian Sea and descend in ancient Italy! Make your way through the winding streets of Florence to explore the birthplace of the Renaissance and home to Blyth Academy Florence. Stop in and say hello to our staff and students before departing south to Rome where you will visit the Vatican and Sistine Chapel, and marvel at the grandeur of the ancient Colosseum.

Acclimate yourself to Greek culture on Crete, the country’s largest island, where you can rejuvenate on dazzling beaches, and swim in clear blue waters. Head to the mainland and the iconic Athens, where you can feast your eyes upon the Agora and the Temple of Zeus, before closing the chapter on this leg of your global study abroad adventure.
