Why study abroad?

Employers see students who have studied abroad as self-motivated, independent, willing to take on challenges, and able to cope with a variety of problems and situations. 

Study abroad can be affordable
The cost of study abroad varies widely depending on location, cost of living in the host city, length of program, etc. However, with advance planning and an open mind, students can find programs that are affordable while meeting their goals.
