Alternative Overseas Experiences

Many other types of opportunities exist abroad to gain international experience and cultural exchange. Information about volunteering, interning, working, and traveling abroad is linked below.

  • Work Abroad. Learn about some of the work opportunities available to college students and recent graduates.
  • Volunteer. Consider a service project or volunteer program for an intense cultural experience.
  • Independent Travel. Start here for resources that can help you prepare for overseas travel on your own.

Study abroad is like spring training for this century. It helps you develop the fundamentals, the teamwork, and the determination to succeed."
