Passage International (previously known as Passage Project) was formed by a group of educators sharing a similar vision: To facilitate experiential education and global understanding by creating opportunities for students to live and learn abroad.
The semester begins with three days of orientation in and around the Kathmandu Valley with introductory meetings, health and safety precautions, introduction to local customs, cultural excursions and cross-cultural adjustment. During this period, the program coordinator meets with each student individually to gain a better sense of each participant’s unique personal interests and goals. Above all, orientation focuses on preparing students for new experiences by learning how to approach each new situation with patience, humor, and an open mind.
