Why study away? Because you will not only gain a fresh perspective on your academic development, but you'll benefit from personal enrichment as well.

Academic and Real-World Benefits

Studying away has more benefits than we can list here, but they include:

  • broadening your curriculum experience
  • giving you a new perspective on our country
  • teaching you about other countries through shared experiences

Research shows employers highly value these experiences and skills, and study-away can improve your future professional and financial potential.
