So, you're a student at Quincy University, and you want to gain experience outside of the classroom. You're thinking about an internship or study abroad, but you need something different. You learn by doing and want to make something meaningful, meet brilliant people, and gain timeless skills.
Leap Semester is a 12-week, fully accredited program focused on travel and work experiences around the globe. You’ll meet in Chicago for a week-long series of classes & workshops. Then you’ll be placed in a startup in one of select global cities (Buenos Aires, Chicago, Dublin, Hong Kong, Paris, Santiago Chile, Seoul, Singapore, or Sydney). You’ll work full time while taking an online course in Business Operations, Storytelling, or Design Thinking.
Think of this as the best parts of internships & study abroad merged into one, awesome semester.
The best part? The cost of the program is included with your Quincy Tuition (except for Housing & Travel). All you need to do is apply by November 11th. Our Founding Class begins in January of 2017.
