Welcome to the World Abroad
Studying in a new environment influences you in a multitude of ways—you build confidence and independence, explore a world beyond your comfort zone, and learn new things about yourself. Use the information on this page to give yourself a better idea of what life could be like for you or your future peers.
We make every effort possible to offer accommodations comparable to what you might find at your home school. Disclosing early helps us to make proper preparations and work with you to determine if a program will be a good fit. If you have a question about accommodations, give us a call!
Resources from Alumni
These are alumni-written essays that reflect upon how their own identity affected their time abroad (both good and bad) and what it was like to navigate another culture in their position. We encourage you to read these to better understand what studying abroad could be like for you or your future peers.
