Why ACC for Your Global Learning Experience?

The objective of the Global Learning Institute is to offer students a minimum two-week program to enrich their cultural, technical, and academic experience within the State of Texas and overseas.

Why You Should Pack Your Bags And Head To Texas?

Austin is the State Capital and self-proclaimed Live Music Capital of the World. Being in the center of Texas, Austin is the best location for short day or overnight excursions within the State. Sporting events, live music, Texas history, an abundance of natural features like Barton Springs, bat tours and the many green belt hiking trails, and of course mouth watering Texas barbecue, all make for a well-rounded Texas experience. For the adventurous at heart, a short drive gets you the River Walk and the Alamo, shopping at the various outlet malls, NASA, tours at a multitude of Texas wineries and olive oil estates or fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. Its no wonder Texas is the 8th most visited State in the US with 1,169,000 visitors annually. What are you waiting for!

What Our Students Are Saying:
"I absolutely loved the trip! It was my first time visiting the US (which has always been a dream for me) and it will definitely not be my last time visiting! I loved the overall culture and people of Texas! I loved the people that I spoke with daily, and I loved the fact that Brian Bilich did such an amazing job organizing everything. He found a gym that we could workout at, he found a bar/restaurant so we could watch the Super Bowl and he was always so nice and chatty. I can't describe my trip in words, but I loved every last minute of it! The only thing that needs to be changed: more business classes."
