Who We Are
SRAS is a team of consultants and advisers dedicated to the educational opportunities offered by challenging locations. Our team has studied within the educational systems of the locations we represent and we continue to live in and/or regularly travel to those cities. This gives us the local insight we need to provide effective educational programming as well as safe and informed experiences for our students and clients.
What We Do
Programs Abroad: We have worked closely with institutions abroad for many years to develop programs of interest and value. Our often-exclusive curriculums are designed with Western credit transfer requirements in mind and come with on the ground support.
Online Programs: Students need to develop and maintain thier language skills, prepare for their valuable time abroad, and integrate as much international experience into thier education as possible. Our unique online courses and workshops are designed to do this.
Custom Group Programs: We combine our experience in curriculum development with extensive contacts developed with local travel agencies, NGOs, businesses, and other organziations to provide flexible and affordable faculty led programs.
Classroom Support: Students should be introduced to as much language and culture as possible to build fluency. SRAS offers a variety of resources to aid educators in bringing new perspectives, experiences, speakers, and tutors to their students.
Research Support: We assist researchers in accessing archives – either by helping them to travel to and work within those archives or in accessing them from abroad.
Online Resources: Our online publications are student-driven, allowing students to publish thier work and build their resumes. Our sites are always free, meaning that students can also use them as valuable source material for further inquiry and research. Supporting and building on these, we also run several publications and social media accounts.

At Stetson, we’ve used SRAS to arrange all of our student study abroad trips for the past five or six years. During that time we’ve sent dozens of students on summer- and semester-long programs in Moscow, St Petersburg, Nizhny Novgorod and Irkutsk. In every interaction I’ve had with them, SRAS has been prompt, reliable, knowledgable, courteous and quick to lend a hand when needed.

Just yesterday my student successfully defended her honors thesis on environmentalism around Lake Baikal, a project that would not have been possible without the fieldwork that she conducted on her SRAS study abroad program in Irkutsk. I hope to see more such projects in the future and will keep directing students to SRAS programs!
