A New Era Unveiled

Dear Esteemed Educators and Partners,

In the spirit of renewal and progress, we’ve taken a monumental step forward. We’re thrilled to introduce SSA Education Abroad, a transformation from our original identity, Spanish Studies Abroad, first unveiled at the prestigious Forum conference. This significant evolution goes beyond a mere change of name; it reflects an expanded mission and a deeper commitment to offering a more diverse array of educational programs.

Why the Evolution?

Understanding the Shift

The landscape of global education continually evolves, just like the needs and preferences of our students. In response, we’ve broadened our educational approach, transitioning to SSA Education Abroad. This new name encapsulates our commitment to offering a wider variety of academic interests and experiential learning opportunities, moving beyond traditional language studies to encompass a more holistic educational experience.

Adapting to Educational Trends

Our decision to evolve is driven by the shifting trends toward the demand for English-based educational offerings and a more nuanced approach to cultural immersion. By integrating feedback and industry insights, we’ve adapted our programs to align with students’ academic and career objectives while maintaining our high standards for Spanish language immersion.

Introducing a Clearer, More Intuitive Program Structure

Responding to valuable input from our community, we’ve refined our program naming conventions for enhanced clarity and relevance (see all programs: ssabroad.org/programs). Our updated structure now includes language levels “in English,” “in Spanish,” and “in Advanced Spanish,” paired with content-focused titles to provide a clearer understanding of what students can expect:

  • “Barcelona, Spain | International Business and Marketing in English”
  • “Havana, Cuba | Liberal Arts in Advanced Spanish”

New Features and Improvements

Modern Design and Enhanced Navigation

We proudly unveil our newly enhanced website, showcasing a modern design and improved navigation to enhance your experience with SSA Education Abroad. Dive into our engaging content that showcases the vibrant cultures of Spain and Latin America and discover the transformative experiences of our students.

Students can now seamlessly filter programs by desired subjects, program type, preferred term for study abroad, or chosen language for coursework—a substantial enhancement from our previous website.

Improved Accessibility

In our commitment to inclusivity, we’ve implemented improved accessibility features on our website, ensuring that all students, including those with difficulties, can navigate and access information effortlessly. We’re working on adding even more features to our website soon.

Updated Social Media Platforms

Stay connected and up-to-date with our community through our newly updated social media platforms. Join the conversation, share your experiences, and become a part of our expanding global family.

SSA has taken to TikTok and Instagram for our students while launching new plans for engaging our professional contacts via LinkedIn where we’ve quickly reached 1,000 followers. Take the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter and stay abreast of our next round of updates.

Engaging and Enriched Content

Introducing Our New Identity

The Fingerprint: A Symbol of Individual Impact

Our new logo encapsulates the journey of each student – unique, personal, and impactful. Like a fingerprint, every student’s experience is one-of-a-kind, yet all share the common goal of making meaningful change. This emblem reflects not only the personal growth and individuality of our students but also our commitment as a family business to nurture and support them like family, guiding them toward making significant contributions to their communities and beyond.

Reflecting Core Values and Authentic Experiences

The fingerprint motif is deeply intertwined with our core values:

  • Family-Oriented Approach: We pride ourselves on being a family business that extends a nurturing, supportive environment to our students, reminiscent of a family’s embrace. This also allows us to provide quick support and communication to our university partners.
  • Authentic Cultural Integration: Our programs are meticulously designed to offer unparalleled, authentic cultural experiences, allowing students to immerse themselves fully in their host communities, fostering genuine understanding and connections.
  • Career Alignment: We are dedicated to ensuring that each experience contributes meaningfully to a student’s CV, bridging the gap between academic endeavors and future career opportunities.
  • Emotional and Personal Development: In today’s landscape, dominated by technological advancements and virtual interactions, we emphasize the importance of personal and emotional development, ensuring our students are equipped to navigate and contribute positively to an ever-evolving global society.

Looking Ahead: Join Us on This Exciting Journey

The unveiling at The Forum is just the beginning. Explore our newly revamped website, ssabroad.org, and discover the extended opportunities now available under SSA Education Abroad. Your partnership remains invaluable as we continue to shape impactful, global educational experiences that resonate with today’s students.

Warm regards,
