Summer study abroad is a great way to get your feet wet before you decide to take a semester or year abroad. The summer semester can be a wonderful chance to explore a new country and learn about different cultures, and it’s often less expensive than an entire semester of study abroad!
You’ll meet people from all over the world and build a global network that will give you an edge when it comes time to find a job after college. Plus, you’ll expand your skills in decision-making, communication, critical thinking and problem-solving.
Your classes will be smaller than you’re used to on campus, so you’ll have the opportunity to work closely with a professor and other students who share your interests. This will help you learn about your chosen field in a deeper, more in-depth way than you can do on a fall or spring program.
If you’re a student in the sciences, consider participating in a summer research experience. Whether you’re interested in working with a professor to conduct a groundbreaking science project or exploring the world through an academic research internship, we have options to fit your needs!
Study abroad can be a fantastic way to learn a new language. It’s also a great way to immerse yourself in another culture and learn about the local customs and practices.
We recommend taking your time to find a summer study abroad program that matches your goals and interests. Once you have a good idea of what you want to do, you can start talking to your academic advisor and researching scholarships.
