Options for Fulfilling Au Pair Education Requirement, spring semester 2021

The Spring semester is only a few weeks away and more students than ever before are turning to blended and online programs to meet their educational needs. During the Au Pair year Au Pairs should complete six semester hours or the equivalent 72 hours (12 credits or 144 hours for Educare program.) The Department of State temporarily accepts the classes from approved Colleges online. Please contact Go Au Pair at educoord@goaupair.com for written approval of this exception.

Many Au Pairs from Go Au Pair Philadelphia cluster complete the Au Pair program education requirement by taking classes online. Coursera offers more than 3,800 courses from Yale, Google, Duke, AWS, and more, some classes are free! Also many Au Pairs take classes with EDX.

This year the Spring semester courses are mostly remote & online, and some designated hands-on classes will take place on campus with safety protocols. Check them.

Au Pair education experience in the US

Hi, It is Maria, Au Pair from Bucks County, PA. You may read already that I recently joined  the Au Pair program and I always dream to visit NY . My American education experience also relates to NY.
Au Pair program gives the Au Pairs great opportunities to study in a real american  college and explore American culture! I chose to take my first course as two classes in the college with a trip to New York!  I took two Sundays classes at Peirce college in Philadelphia already. The 3rd Sunday will be the final trip to the Big Apple! I  had very lovely time during my classes, met a lot of new friends from all around the world, learned more about a history of New York.Au Pair classes 1

I had fun with my home work and did absolutely great job with my final project about New York Fashion Week!Au Pair classes 4

The classes were a little long. It took long hours but you don’t really pay attention when you have a great time.Au Pair classes 3

We had a lot of interesting activities, lovely lunch time, watched great American shows, found out about a lot of secret places of NY that I will definitely visit them in future!Au Pair classes 2

Our teacher was great!He was joking  and telling us the stories about a real New Yorker’s life style. It was fun! I was happy to feel like a student again.Au Pair classes

Now I’m looking forward to go to many amazing places in NY next Sunday with very lovely company!

P.S. Enjoy your time to be an au pair and it’s never late to learn something new!❤️  Best regards, Mariia from Ukraine.
