Brittney Phanivong- Peer Study Abroad Advisor

Student, Brittney Phanivong posing with telephone booth in London, England in front of Big BenHello! My name is Brittney and I am a senior pursuing a major in Science, Technology, and Society. I studied abroad in London, England during Spring Quarter 2017 on a UW Faculty-Led Program, "English in London". By fully immersing myself in a new environment with new cultures and people, it made me realize that studying abroad is more than earning school credits. It was an experience that helped me discover new things about myself and learn what it is like to live in a foreign country. I want to be able to help students find the best option for their next trip abroad and create their own life-long memories that they will cherish forever. Please make an appointment to learn more about studying abroad!


Amelia Payne- Peer Study Abroad Advisor


Hi everyone! My name is Amelia Payne and I am a Global Studies major here at UWB. I studied abroad in Lyon, France during the Summer of 2017 on a UW faculty led program, "Thinking visually, Seeing Critically: Making Art Work in Lyon, France." As a transfer student, I did not think that I would be able to study abroad during my short two years here at UWB, but, by participating in an Early Fall Exploration Seminar, I was able to work the time into my schedule, without interfering with my classes here on campus. I want to help other students realize that their dream to study abroad is possible, even if you are not at UWB for all four years. Studying abroad is important for students of all majors and backgrounds to participate in, and everyone deserves that opportunity. Come make an appointment with us to find out how you can study abroad!
