Why Should I Study Abroad?
Future Employment
Studying Abroad is a great resume builder
Only 10% of American students study abroad!
Experience abroad provides interesting talking points in interviews and increases your marketability

Fact - Employers are looking for students who:
Are able to take initiative
Work with people from all over the world
Are resourceful and flexible
Going abroad is the best way to prove to employers that you embody those traits!
Personal Growth
Living Abroad can give you new perspective about yourself and your capabilities
Students often become more independent, flexible, confident, open minded, inspired and culturally competent
Going abroad will open your eyes to new people and cultures - maybe even a new language!
Academic Perspectives
Studying abroad allows you to learn your academic field from a whole new perspective
Meeting other people in your field will grow your personal, academic and professional network globally
Learning a new language can be easier through full immersion in the language and culture
"My advice is don’t be afraid of a challenge. If you want to be there, they’ll make sure you have a great experience. Plus, study abroad actually made me a better student!"
- Ha Pham, Chemical Engineering
HKUST, Hong Kong
Koc University, Turkey
"Why go abroad? Because it's the best thing you could ever do for yourself. The people you meet, the places you go, and the memories you make will stay with you for a lifetime."
- Rebecca Olsho, IAS
Pontificia Universidad Católica, Chile
Winter Break in Guatemala
