Program Selection

The most important tip in applying for a study abroad experience is to think ahead. Planning two to three quarters in advance of when you want to go abroad will give you the best options in terms of programs and funding.

Start with these questions:

  1. What do I wish to study? How will credits earned fulfill my graduation requirements?
  2. Where do I want to go? Is language and cultural immersion important to me?
  3. How long can I be away? How much support would I like in the host country?
  4. How much money am I realistically able to budget for this experience?
  5. Do I meet the foreign language and other requirements?
