Scholars Abroad Consultants (SAC) began in 2015 with a commitment to guiding students through their adventures abroad. Since its inception, SAC has worked toward a vision for studying abroad that values communication and accountability. Armed with a mission of putting students first, SAC dedicates itself to making foreign study and language learning easy and achievable for all.
Founder Shannon Dwyer was inspired to create SAC as early as 2012 by her experiences abroad. Her adventurous spirit, love for Argentine tango, and studies in language and culture drove her to uproot her life and venture south to Argentina. She lived in Buenos Aires for three years with her young son, facing countless obstacles while starting a life in a new country.
While overseas, she dealt with an unfamiliar dialect, uninhabitable apartments, immigration hassles, and an unstable political situation—difficulties that made her adaptable, resourceful, and committed to helping others achieve their dreams abroad.
She has created SAC to provide students with top schools with superior academics, exciting cultural activities, central locations, and trustworthy housing. SAC eliminates the complications and inconveniences of studying in a foreign country, letting students take full advantage of the benefits—the chance to explore the world while prioritizing your education.
