Getting Started

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

Education abroad opportunities are available for all students – freshman through doctoral candidates. International programs can be as short as one week or as long as a full year. Students may choose to be part of a 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. Texas leads the nation in export revenue. 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.
