Kelly’s Answer

If you are picking schools based on their study abroad program, I would consider picking one you have a genuine interest in being in for an extended amount of time. While all universities have different partnerships, internal sponsors, and advisors that will guide students in the process, factors that help in this decision are: Picking a country and school system in a language that you can speak. A basic overview in the classroom of a language is much different than having to give a presentation in a foreign language! Another thought is pick one that is relatively safe and in a location where you are okay being at a distance from home. For U.S. citizens, the U.S. Dept. of State has a travel advisory list of differing levels of security for each country. Being in a location that is not in a warzone, increased risk for terrorism, or experiencing the impact of human rights violations is generally in the best interest of the people. Other countries may have similar sites.

Hi Shakuan,


Studying abroad can be such a rewarding experience and there are many opportunities to choose from. A great first step would be to meet with a career/guidance counselor at your school to see what options are out there that would fit in with your current major, or that will satisfy electives for graduation. There are also many other factors to consider such as costs and living arrangements. Many schools have study abroad offices that can provide you with many important details, as well as someone to talk to that can help you find the best option for you.

Kyle’s Answer

Hey,

When I went through college, I found that most majors had a wealth of information on the study abroad options that would be pertinent to that major. In most institutions, you would want to head to your major's department office where they will have different information and consultants for that department available for you. There you can ask them about available study abroad options or bring them study abroad options you've found and go over those options' impacts to your major (whether they'll work for credit, help your studies, etc.)
Of course, you can always do study abroad for elective credit as well...again, you'd want to consult a department head in your major to make sure an elective will count towards your graduation.

Hope that helps.

I don't believe there is an answer for your question because there is no such thing. Studying abroad is an individual experience which would give you an understand of a culture. If there is something matters in the process it would be your preference more than anything.

Studying abroad is a fantastic experience. If you're not focused on going to a particular country, I recommend choosing a study abroad program based on the courses offered. It is great to complete courses for your major while abroad. To do this, you should consider looking into study abroad programs within your major's department / college or ask some of your professors if they know of any opportunities. If there are study abroad options within your particular department, you might even be able to go with other students or professors you know already which can be fun to share the experience with them.
