  • What former IUPUI Students Have Said About Study Abroad

    • "But trust me when I say this: It Will Be Worth It. Whether it is a two week program or a semester long program, DO IT. You need to cross this bridge because once you do, you are going to thank yourself and wish you had done it sooner."
      ~ Saira Choudhry, Multiple Locations, Central Europe

    • "You learn more about yourself when you are challenged and you will build strengths that you can draw from to help you overcome adversity in the future."
      ~ Sam Stuck, Osijek, Croatia

    • "Studying abroad adds another level to your college experience."
      ~ Teresa Parker, West Africa

    • "If you are worried about traveling, or you haven’t done it before, don’t let that keep you from going. College, for most people, is the last point in your life when you can genuinely give up a month of your life to go live in another country.
      The reward of study abroad is immense and it is so worth it."
      ~ Jared Brown, Paros, Greece

    • "A lot of people say that studying abroad can be 'life-changing,' but for me it was more of a life-confirming experience."
      ~ Cassie Anderson, Freiburg, Germany

    • "My favorite memories from studying abroad in Germany were the many opportunities the whole group got to connect and bond. I enjoyed being able to experience the German lifestyle with other students interested in the same material."
      ~ Jeanine Adler,  Berlin, Germany

  • Your Degree and Study Abroad

    How does your major fit in with study abroad?

    You are not limited to study abroad programs within your major or department. However, many students want to pursue programs which focus on their field of study in an international context. Perhaps you have always wanted to study art in Italy, public health in Rwanda, business in the UK, or biology in Australia. Below are some resources to help you explore some suggested programs within various majors.

  • Scholarships and Financial Aid

    Study abroad is a long-term investment in your future. Don't let funding deter you from exploring study abroad opportunities! 

    Finding scholarships applicable to your program or academic interests may take some searching. It’s never too early to start looking for potential scholarships. If you study abroad on a co-sponsored program (e.g., IES, CIEE), you may be eligible for their scholarships. IU Bloomington offers scholarships for students from other IU campuses, minority scholarship, and internship incentive

    Additional help for scholarships and financial aid

    Financial aid shouldn't be so difficult. And with careful financial planning, short- and long-term programs could be more affordable than you would expect! Check out MoneyGeek's financial planning tips and additional scholarship and financial aid information.

  • Fasts Facts about Study Abroad
