Getting Started

Education abroad encompasses a variety of international experiences – study, research, internships, volunteer, and service learning programs.

Education abroad opportunities are available for all students – freshman through Ph.D. candidates. The different types of international programs can be as short as a week or last a year. Students may choose to be part of a large group or to pursue an individual program.

An education abroad experience will broaden students’ intellectual and personal horizons, help them navigate in different environments, practice or perfect a language, and build a resume to help broaden career options.

In order for Aggies to assume their leadership role in the interdependent, global economy, it is imperative they have a broader understanding of the international landscape. Aggies can have a positive effect on the lives of people throughout the world.
