Western-Style Learning

All courses offered at ACCP centers follow a Western style of instruction that emphasizes active student participation in discussions and encourages in-depth analysis and critical thinking. 


First-Year Seminar

All ACCP Center students are required to take a first-year seminar course. Similar to courses offered at universities around the world, the first-year seminar is meant to prepare students to study and live on a university campus abroad.

Student Looking at Building

Community Connections

In addition to the in-person courses taken at ACCP centers, students may participate in ACCP-sponsored events and activities outside the classroom. Events include school outings, prominent speakers, academic presentations, alumni networking events, and major-specific information sessions. 

Explorer-ACCP Quality Guarantee

The quality and integrity of the Explorer-ACCP program are of the utmost importance to IPERC and its Explorer-ACCP partner institutions. To ensure that Explorer-ACCP Centers maintain our academic standards, IPERC will take the following quality control measures:

  1. Syllabi developed for each course must be approved by the Explorer-ACCP Program to ensure it meets Explorer-ACCP course requirements.

  2.  Final examinations for each course are based on the learning objectives provided by Explorer-ACCP.

  3. Final exams will be recorded to ensure that academic integrity standards are maintained.

  4. The Explorer-ACCP Program will conduct random checks of student examination forms to ensure academic integrity. Additionally, examination forms will be kept for 2 years to maintain records of student performance.

  5. In the event of any academic dishonesty, the school in question will be required to retest its students.

  6.  The Explorer-ACCP Program will conduct site visits or lecture recording reviews at each Explorer-ACCP Partner Center at least once per semester. Explorer-ACCP staff will provide a detailed report of each site visit, explaining what was observed during the visit and providing feedback to the Explorer-ACCP Partner Center regarding suggestions for improvement. The Explorer-ACCP Program will maintain records of past site visits and future plans for site visits.
