Program Description:
With the Beyond Study abroad program you’ll receive a study abroad experience unlike any other. Through this program you’ll be living in Costa Rica and studying at the University of Costa Rica where you’ll improve your Spanish language skills.

As a program designed for student athletes, while you study abroad you will continue to train with an experienced staff at a state of the art facility. The team there will create a personalized workout for you based upon an in-depth questionnaire and an interview with your coach. In addition to these work outs, students have the opportunity to stay on top of their game by practicing or playing with Costa Rican teams.

But a trip to Costa Rica wouldn’t be complete without taking time to enjoy the natural beauty and adventure this country has to offer. While you’re here, you can zip line through rain forest canopies, go sea snorkeling, or learn to surf. You’ll also have the opportunity to take a 5- day Extended Weekend Excursion to Bocas Del Toro Archipelago, a series of islands in the Caribbean Sea off the northwest coast of Panama.



Costa Rica

Beyond also recognizes the importance of giving back and offers you the opportunity to coach youth teams in underprivileged communities.
