TravelWhat questions should I ask?


Look into what courses your program of interest offers. What courses are you able to receive credit for while you are abroad? Plan it out with your academic advisor in order to receive credit for your major or minor. 


What type of environment are you looking for? Big city? Small town? Field work? Do you have a region in mind already?

You can search for your ideal program by continent, country, city, career/academic focus, or by the interactive map on this site.


Are you interested in living with a host family or live in an apartment/residence hall? Would you like to do an internship or volunteer work while you are there?

These options are listed on the program brochure page.

Program Length

Would you like to study abroad for a summer, a semester, or a year?  Some programs can be as short as a couple of weeks. 

Look for the "Start" date and "End" date to see if it matches your schedule.
