Life at THINK Global School means being immersed in another culture – often, several other cultures – at all times. Learning doesn’t stop when you leave the classroom: it’s fully integrated into the places you sleep, the food you eat, and the ways you get around.
Exploring new ways of life by actually living them is part of what it means to be a THINK Global School student. You’ll learn to quickly adjust to new cultures, accommodations, and cuisines each term, developing essential adaptation skills that will help you thrive in the most varied of circumstances throughout your life.
But student life at THINK Global School doesn’t end with the world around you. The school also has a unique culture of its own: one that fosters community, cooperation, and creativity. THINK Global students come from nations across the world to partake in an unforgettable learning experience together; along the way they create unique traditions and form bonds that cross borders and can last for lifetimes.
It’s just kind of surreal how much history we have together and how we will always be a part of each others’ lives even after we leave. Yuan Yuan, Class of 2016
Home Is Where You Lay Your Head
Just as no two countries are the same, no two housing situations at THINK Global School are quite alike. You may find yourself living in a dorm on a host school campus one term, an apartment in a bustling city the next, a bungalow in the jungle the following, and a series of hotel rooms, tents, and hammocks during our explorations. Yet all of our accommodations have one thing in common: you’ll be living as a community with other THINK Global School students and staff, and you’ll have a safe and comfortable place to lay your head each night.
In most situations, you’ll share a room with another student of your gender, with males and females living in different buildings or on separate floors. Student LIFE staff live among you, and there are always at least two staff members on duty to answer your questions or help you navigate the sometimes complex (but always rewarding) landscape of student life abroad.
